I am pretty much an optimist in every way, except about things concerning myself. Friends and endeavors and work and such, I am very open and strong, but when it comes to issues concerning my personal life I usually don't have a very good outlook and seem to become more timid and introverted. I read the following today and thought it would be a good post for myself and I am sure anyone else who experiences the same thing.
"An optimist sees an opportunity in every calamity;
A pessimist sees a calamity in every opportunity. "
- Sir Winston Churchill, British Prime Minister
