That's a long time to be optimistic, but I'm up for the challenge. I'm just a very optimistic person. I always look on the bright side of things. Lost my job? More time to read. Feeling rejected? I use that feeling and convert it into trying harder and doing better next time. Caught in the rain outside? I take a nap at a coffee shop and wait for the rain to stop. My body is just hard-wire for optimism. Optimism oozes out of my pores. What's that smell? my girlfriend asks. That's optimism, I say. That's a whole lot of optimism.
