The optimist will not die

I am an optimist. Sometimes even when it doesn’t make much sense. I am aware of this. I am also a very logical person. It’s just that sometimes I would rather not go with the logical answer. This doesn’t mean that I don’t see and understand it.
Maybe this isn’t the smartest way to do things, but I think its more fun. :)

BUT I am also aware that this often means I stick with things longer then I should. I think part of being successful is knowing when to cut your losses and let something go.
I am not real good with that part.
I tend to hang on way past the time when it’s reasonable to do so.
Some days I love this about myself, and some days not so much.

I constantly wonder if my optimism means that my expectations are too high. If high hopes get in the way of being content with what I have and where I am now.

I can live in the moment when it’s a good moment, but there are lots of times when the moment is just ok and I am thinking to myself that maybe it should be or could be better… I waste too much time thinking about what I might be missing.
We all only have so many hours in a day, there are only so many things you can choose to do. You can only be one place at one time.
So what I am going to do is this.
Relax, enjoy where I am, and try to think hard enough about my decisions before I make them that once they are made I can feel confident of them.


  1. Wonderful post!! I'm with you all the way. I tend to be very optimistic too, drives some people crazy, but who cares. Better optimistic than pessimistic all the time (have friends like that)

  2. Thanks so much! I think its a good way to be too :)
