I just realized that I am an optimist. No matter what happens I look on the bright side (this doesn't mean I don't have things I could get sad or depressed about). I do sometimes get grumpy or discouraged but for the most part I am content where I am. I know that part of this is because my step dad always looked on the dark side. He was constantly complaining about the weather, the economy, the news, business, life, whatever. I determined then not to be like that. Everyone gets down sometimes but for the most part we choose our attitude. We decide how we are going to look at things. As for me...I choose to be happy.
