“No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit.”

~Helen Keller

This is a call for optimism and hope.  In a time when so much negativity rules the media and many human interactions, it is often difficult to maintain one’s positivity.  This week, as we enjoy the positive and hopeful nature of the holiday season, I ask you to reflect on these feelings and plan now on how you will push away the negativity and pessimism which so often dominates our lives.  Only by maintaining your optimism and hope will you achieve your potential.  I choose hope.  And I am optimistic that you will too!

Happy Holidays to you and yours no matter your faith or customs.  We are all one human spirit and we can make our lives and the lives of those around us a little better every day.  Thank you for sharing a bit of your journey with me twice each week.
