I'm a people person. Love to be around people and love even more to watch them. Love interacting and yes, I can be rather opinionated. LOL I'm really active on the HCG forum and one thing I see so clearly anymore is how different we all are.
I'm a relentless optimist. I say relentless because it can be really annoying and I know it. I'm always going to see the bright side. Nothing gets me down for long. Then there are the depressives who only see shadows. These folks drive us optimists crazy and I suspect we do the same to them. These people call themselves realists but they don't see how they aren't realists at all but are full of negativity. Sometimes I just want to shake them and say, "Buck up! You can do this. Things aren't as black as you think." But I sweetly just try to encourage and try to hide the whip behind my back! :-)
While working on my edits this week, I realized my personality makes its way into my work. My heroines are always strong, can-do women. They may not always realize it but they rise to the occasion. And I'm probably always going to write women like that because I like them. I want to be them.
How about you? What's your personal challenge? Do you need encouragement today that you can rise to a challenge?
