The Glass is Overflowing!
I've decided to become an optimist again. I used to be a "realist" -- which, come on, is only a fancy way of saying pessimist. Have you ever been around a person who calls themselves a realist? I know, they're depressing, huh?
A few months' ago, I had to go to the post office in the city center because our mailbox had been broken into. We don't actually live near the city center, it's just our address. Everyday I had to wait in line to get my mail. Well, now I had to go yesterday to mail some books and a contract, and lo and behold, the place was PACKED! They had a new counter to line up around and everything. They shut another post office down, and now this is the only one in town. So see? I thought it was such a pain, but really, I'd been blessed with two post offices at the time. I would have wasted an hour getting my mail before that!
CA's sales tax went up today to 9.25%! Ouch. Yeah, that's going to help the economy. I mean, who is going to buy a car/house now? But the optimist in me says YAY, I got a new purse recently. I'm good. The optimist in me says I can buy all the groceries I want because there is no tax on food. Mangia
So even if you don't know what you have to be grateful for today (like two post offices) I guarantee, there's something. Especially if you have your health -- that's something you can't truly appreciate until you don't have it. Happy Midweek!
