I hate generalizations so rather than saying everyone, I am going to use the word, "others"...Others seem so negative. I have never considered myself an optimistic person but I just think on the whole, my life is way too good, this earth is too beautiful, for me to waste time being negative. I want to do it all and I want to remain grateful for every second of it. Yes, I have bad days. Don't we all? But really what is wrong with wanting to run through the rain with a smile on my face? What is wrong with wanting to climb a tree and spend hours listening to the leaves be blown around by the wind or look at the sun shine on a lake? People need to slow it down and be thankful for what God has given them. Thank you God for this beautiful day. Why walk around uptight waiting for the bottom to fall out? Others get so stuck on being independent and thinking it is a good thing to be "hard" or tough that they no longer allow things or people to make them happy, to stir their emotions. I know too many people that would rather shut people out and miss out on experiences, because there is a chance it might not be perfection, they might get hurt.
I guess it all comes down to this...I would rather fall on my butt, have my heart broken and be laughed at for trying than to be alone, dissapointed and depressed because I never tried.
