First of all, my heartfelt thanks to all of you who took the time to connect with me following the launch of my web site and blog. It’s just the kind of thing that reinforces my belief in the goodness of people.
And isn’t that sometimes a little hard to believe – that there are good people in the world? I don’t know about you, but I often feel bombarded with so many negative stories, both in the 24/7 news cycle and from people who seem to be drawn to the dark side. It can make it pretty hard for me to keep my happy face on!
But, by golly, that’s my goal! I know, I know – unbridled optimism is thoroughly irritating to some people. Curious, isn’t it, that a positive outlook or cheery demeanor can rub people wrong? I certainly understand this from a psychological perspective and frankly, I feel for people who need to traverse their lives wearing their grumpy pants. I believe it is a hard road to travel.
But in the meantime, I’ll just happily bop along on my Pollyanna path. Yes, it’s my habit to look for the good in people and, here’s the great part, I generally find it!
