The Best You Can Is Good Enough

I chose today's Saturday Scavenger Shots word with an eye toward the upcoming New Year. The word is OPTIMISTIC. I make an effort to keep a positive frame of mind. Even though I fail every now and then, I keep mindful of my attitude and adjust it if at all possible! I always figure, why pre-defeat yourself by assuming the worst? Being OPTIMISTIC can lead to disappointment, but being pessimistic is just miserable. Why not hope for the best? Here are some things that make me feel OPTIMISTIC.

Seeing families participating in library activities together makes me OPTIMISTIC in many ways!
DR is a good man and I feel so lucky to have him in my life. I am OPTIMISTIC about our future.
Now that four of my kids are adults, three live on their own, and one has a family of his own, I don't have them all together in one place as often as I'd like. But seeing them always makes me so happy. I am OPTIMISTIC about their futures...and therefore mine as well.

Here's hoping you have lots to be OPTIMISTIC about in the coming year. Let's decide that 2013 will be a great year and then work to make it so. Being OPTIMISTIC, coupled with positive effort is the way to go :)

Now...shall I tag back Jasen? You want it? If so, it is yours.

You have a lot to be optimistic about. You have a good man, a good family and a good job. The future is bright for you, Laura B.

By the way, I have chosen the word...BARE. Yes, BARE.

I'm not even sure why I'm optimistic, but I am.
