Tiffany is having a fun time with Mr. Linky today. Optimism pays she says.

Optimism does pay. It puts a positive spin on about anything. Being optimistic also helps you stay a bit healthier.

When I was younger (before kids basically) I just flew by the seat of my pants. I was selfish, negative, energetic, crazy, and basically didn't give a shit.

Then I got pregnant with Owen.

My life changed. I had to grow up. With having children, you need to be optimistic.

Hoping for the best, hoping that you'll raise this tiny baby to be somewhat human.

Hoping to make it through the night with a screaming little guy.

Hoping he'll do alright when he goes to school.

Then hoping he'll be a good big brother.

Hoping they'll get along.

Optimism in my little world is thinking today will be a good day.

Owen will have a good day at school.

Cole will have a good day with me.

Carl will have a great day at work.

Optimism is needed everyday. You need to wake up thankful that your kids have working lungs to wake you.

I'm thankful for my family and optimistic that we'll all turn out wonderful.

(I don't know how much more wonderful I can become, but you get the idea)



Great post!


Yes I do indeed get the idea, and I love it!


I do belive that when you become a parent that optomism must be a part of your asrsnel.

I love the photos

This is such a wonderful post! I fully believe in this too and I try every day to keep thinking positively. Great post and cute photos! :)


I could use some of this optimism you speak of.


Hey hun! I haven't heard from you in awhile, and just wanted to let you know I was thinking about you! Don't disappear from the blogosphere! STAY AWAY FROM THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL. :)
