I am naturally an optimist. I love the movie Pollyanna! But she like other optimists haven't been given a chance. They are written off as naive, not able to see the "truth" or what is "realistic", or that they choose to avoid bad things - blinders on. As I grew up I ran into this a lot, so of course in true "I'm not stupid" fashion I tried to hide my optimism and even really lost it for a while. But on this journey I am constantly brought back to who I am.
Hey it's Karen, these are just some thoughts that help me!
