I just watched a video from the discovery channel that described research about being an optimist or a pessimist. I am a pessimist and I am unhappy about it. But years of wishing, hoping, praying changes nothing. So as I stated in an earlier blog, maybe it is just me. BUT, then it turns out there ARE differences in the brain and genes of each. So I am vindicated. I knew I wasn’t just walking around waiting for an ax murder to get me on purpose! It is GENETIC! What a relief!
So, if you say the glass is half full and I tell you that - no - it is half empty and full of germs and microbes and feces and you will probably get a terminal illness if you drink tap water - I can't help myself!
If you say you hope you win the lottery and I tell you I couldn't win a bucket of dirt if they were giving one to every person present - it is genetics.
If you tell me you hope I have a great day and I tell you that you that there is no way in hell I probably will because good days just don't happen anymore - don't blame me, I was born this way.
Wow!! What a relief!! I can finally be myself and blame it on my parents!
I just might have that good day after all!
Check it out for yourself!
