'Our backyard!' I think I may have at least one other optimist in the family...

It's been a tough week in my neck of the woods, and I am feeling blessed that I am an optimist at heart. Being a natural optimist is at times a double-edged sword though. Whilst I  always tend to see the good and I think on the whole it's a pretty good way to walk through life, not everyone feels the same. I also get accused of gilding the lily. Not being pragmatic. Wearing rose-coloured glasses. There is an element of truth there I suppose. Sometimes a reality check is a good thing, being practical and laying out the risks is useful. Mostly though, I think it's about how I view the world. I don't see huge insurmountable problems and no glimmer of hope. I see challenges. This seems tough, but I've survived and thrived in tougher environments. Opportunities - this may seem unbelievably scary now, but who know maybe I'll love it (that was diving...for work...near a huge drop-off), the thought of public speaking scares the pants off me, but I know I'll love it once I am up there... Rays of sunshine - singing Wiggles with Little L - who doesn't love that crazy Captain Feathersword? -  when someone says thank you when I finish a tough job. How about you? Optimist or pessimist? Enjoy xx
