Pessimistic Polly

Well, the other day I was having a crisis of identity (as I often do) and decided that if-maybe- I put my thoughts, ideas and opinions out there, I might find myself along the way. So…here I am. I am 30. That was an entire crisis in itself, and maybe a topic for another day. I am a wife. I am a mom. I am a 2nd grade teacher. I am a student. I am a reader. I am an eternal pessimist. It’s true- just ask my husband. He, however, is an eternal optimist. I have to say that sometimes that gets on my nerves more than just about anything else. And at other times, I think it is the only thing that saves me from myself and my pessimistic ways. I am not sure why I tend to see the negative long before I see the positive. For this reason, I have been working especially hard lately to notice the things in my life that I am grateful for. I had a friend in college who noticed absolutely everything about life, and he found beauty in everything. I think it’s time that I try to do the same.
