I took my phone and turned off the alarm this morning. 6 am. Reluctantly, I opened messages I got last night. Popped out of the screen: “Choose to be optimistic, it feels better - Dalai Lama”. I rolled my eyes and pursed my lip into a thin line, well, it was from my chatty workmate. She's my best companion in spite of her ability to talk the hind legs off a donkey drives me crazy. Optimistic became the first word I think about this morning. How far can we be an optimistic person? Should we add some drops of realistic sense and be more practical?
