Today, when I turned on my computer, I was greeted with a headline that said something to the effect that 2009 was such a bad year that Americans lacked optimism moving into 2010.
Shouldn't optimism kick in when things are bad? Isn't that when it's most useful? Isn't optimism a lot harder when all people hear is that they lack optimism? Doesn't that become a self-fulfilling prophesy?
2009 was what it was...a hard year for many. 2010 hasn't had a chance yet, but the media is already dragging it down. Let's let 2009 be. There will be an answer. Let it be.
Now, doesn't that help? Just a bit?
