I Miss Optimism

There was a time when I had certainty everything would always be ok.  You know, that sense that no matter what happened it all happened for good reasons and that everything would be as it should and that that – that would be great.

Then bad things started happening. My mom got sick, the guy I was sure I was going to marry got a job and nmoved away and we couldn't manage the long-distance and longer abscences.  A career that was going great stopped being so great.  I keep looking for the lessons and I don't see any.

It all makes me more cynical and less hopeful.  More confused and less certain that everything is going to work out.  I miss optimism. {end story}

You ever feel like you're on the wrong side of Karma?  What do you do to get back to the other side?

    My life has gone a similar path. At one point everything seemed just right & it felt like everything would always be good. But then everything seemed to go bad all at once. It was almost more than I could handle and I seriously was questioning life & the point of sticking around. But somehow I clawed myself out of that dark place & just decided I would choose happiness. I would choose to look at the positive even though it was difficult. Sure, nothing is perfect and difficult things happen way too often. Still, I choose happiness. Life is too long to go the other way.
