For most of my life I have regarded myself as an optimist….a glass half full kind of person. I have been known to irritate people with my cheerful disposition,especially first thing in the morning.My cheery “Good morning” always preceded me through the door , at work. The thing is, I have noticed a shift in my attitude, just lately. If not exactly a moaning Minnie, I have noticed a definite leaning towards pessimism and cynicism. I am not sure if this goes hand in glove with getting older or if my daily aches and pains contribute to this change. I found this quote on the net and am posting it to remind myself that life is how you view it as well as what you experience.
"You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses."
