Things change so fast!
Friday, October 12, 2018
I often wonder if I’m a pessimist or a realist. I doubt that I’m an optimist! When life feels like it’s going badly, it feels like it’s going to last forever, and when it’s going well, I assume it’s only going to last for a short time. I looked back at something I posted on my caregiving site just over a week ago, and at that time, I felt things were really tough and it would go on indefinitely. I’d completely forgotten I’d written it or even that I felt like that. And in fact, now I feel good. The truth is, most of the time, things switch from good to bad and back again incredibly fast. Now when things feel bad, I’m training myself to think, “This too shall pass, probably almost in the blink of an eye.”
Are you a pessimist, a realist, or an optimist?
