Why can’t I just be optimistic? Why must it always be “the sky is falling”? Why are some people just able to be bright and hopeful about life and things and people like me aren’t?

I know this one guy who is always “up”. Nothing ever seems to get him down? Even when the situation is dire, he can manage to find optimism.

I’ve discovered there’s no magic pill and no matter how much I smile, there are times when I feel so down I’m not sure how to recover.

But it’s not all doom and gloom. My one hour commute home gives me time to reflect and recharge. Coming home to watch a great movie, enjoy food & drink, or play games with me extended circle of online friends is awesome and I find myself going to bed relaxed … only to do it all again tomorrow.
