A Pessimist's Guide to Optimism V
You have arrived!
New acquantances don't even notice the struggling devil on your shoulder - but he's still there, and he's got a plan.
The plan? To get you to overshoot your mark, to put on a happy face, to go beyond bubbly - all sugar, no spice, sickly sweet. Can you think of anyone like that? I can. They make me sick. I make me sick when I catch myself on overdrive. Then WHAM! I'm right back with my old pessimist self.
So, go gently. Notice your optimistic accomplishment and soak it in like the sunrise on a cold morning.
Next month, I'll write one last post of optimistic input, and then you'll be good to go!
