This is the shot in the arm I needed this morning. Some weeks, it is like a roller coaster: You’re up, down and then back up again. All the while, the problems of the world are still out there.

Sometimes the defeatist attitude is like a juggernaut laying waste to the power of optimism. Other times, you see such negative attitudes for what they are: A shrinking of the human spirit; complacency for the status quo; an unwillingness to embrace the possibility of (wonderful) change.

It’s all a matter of perspective (for me, anyway). And with that, I have two words of advice for you: Keep Writing! The world needs it. Be well.
