i'm a bit of a pessimist. is that surprising? i like the idea of always looking on the bright side or seeing the positive in every situation, and every once in a while i surprise myself by doing just so. but on average i tend to be a bit of a downer. i'm a natural worrier, so it's easy to see the worst that could happen. so, to me, being a slight pessimist means "always being prepared for the worst". which is smart, right?
yeah, not so much. i mean, it's good to be prepared (does anyone else live and die by the brownie motto?), but always setting yourself up for the worst in case it does happen doesn't make for very happy living. and worrying about everything is exhausting. but worst of all, it makes it hard to take risks, or make changes, in life, in love, and at work.
and baby, i want to make some serious changes. i want to leap without a net. i want to learn that i can land on my feet.
so i'm shifting my attitude. i might never be an optimist, and i might never not even imagine the worst a little bit, but this year i'm not going to let it stop me.
this year i will:
are you making any attitude adjustments in 2013?
