“I don’t believe in pessimism…”


“…If something doesn’t come up the way you want, forge ahead. If you think it’s going to rain, it will.”

Clint Eastwood, Actor and Director

End of the week reality check: anything you’re doubting right now? Of course there’s the major biggies: housing market in the tank; job losses at an all-time high; your favorite Idol was voted off.

I’ve had my share of losses, of failures, let downs and rejections. Believe me. But I never have it as bad as the next gal.  And you most likely don’t have it that bad either.  Maybe your husband lost his job, but you’re still working. Maybe you’re both out of work and lost your house, but have family to stay with and your kids are HEALTHY. Maybe you’re a single mom, but have the freedom to call your own shots, while watching a neighbor in a crumbling marriage with no outlet.

Find the silver lining. Seek out the sunshine. That’s your job this weekend:

Be optimistic. Find the positive in EVERY situation. Keep a gratitude journal, even if all you have to write is “the car started this morning.” Appreciate the little things and the little things will lighten your heart.
