Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm had the right idea
Let's be optimistic

  1. Stay off the internet. That is where I run into the most vile comments and behavior from people that if it were in real life/person... I would never consider having anything to do with them. But the internet hides that .. until you read what some of these people think ..
    I try harder some days than others to be cheerful.
    When it really gets to me, I just huddle with the cats and think about moving to NY and living in a pretty little house in the middle of nowhere :)

  2. Optimism is often misplaced and sometimes the refrain "Everything will turn out all right" seems extremely foolish.

    1. Perhaps I actually mean positivism ?

  3. I think I might have to take a break from Twitter and FB because I am growing weary of it as well and I think it's only going to intensify now that he's officially in charge.

  5. Google 'Pussyhat Project'! I'm marching in Edinburgh tomorrow. I wasn't going to then I heard the Inauguration Speech which was angry and full of fighting talk and promises which will be impossible to keep without a lot of people suffering in the process and it made me want to do something apart from sitting on my arris and complaining about it!

  7. Today I thought Positively. My daughter is in the hospital.
    I cheered her on and told her all positive things regarding the way things are going to turn out.
    From My Mouth to God's Ears !!

  10. Trump is in the White House! The end is very near!

  11. At 12:03 EST, whitehouse.gov took down the pages for climate change, LGBT rights and civil rights. Fining it difficult to have any optimism what so ever.

  12. Just live in your own bubble John. I do it all the time. When I get in 'that mood' I stop watching tv, I stay off of FB (which I've cut WAY back on anyway because I'm tired of it) and I just live in my own world, meeting with only those I want to meet with, and do things FOR ME! It helps.

  13. Compartmentalize ... For Americans, do what you can when you can, and otherwise don't let it eat you up. Rest of the time, stop and smell the roses; everyone has some (not a bad idea, no matter what's going on). Or at least, that's what I'm going to try.

    Oh, yeah, and march in Washington tomorrow ...

  16. We get fed up with the BBC news - they delight in sex and murder and when finishing any political report they end on a bad note.

  17. I listen to the news on the radio once a day. That way I keep up with anything important but don't get dragged down into the mire of misery on television where they delight in showing the worst images over and over again.

  18. I'm going to the village pantomime today for a bit of a laugh x

  19. I'm making a real effort to only Share good things on my Facebook page, all this doom and gloom is dragging everyone down :-(

    Let's be optimistic indeed and find joy in the simple everyday and little things.

    The dogs sharing their basket this morning washing each others ears and necks surrounded by all their teddy bears ... which they have suddenly become very attached to ... was a sight to make anyone smile.

  20. I love, love, love Shirley Temple.....I have a couple of her early movies on DVD...think I'll watch them tomorrow..... :-)

  21. Even on the darkest of days, there is beauty all around us.

  22. I'd like to just think of news as a forecast that says "Mostly Sunny"....

  23. Thinking positive and being blind and naive is not the same thing. Everything can go wrong, but mostly it doesn't. We can't change Trump, but other things we can change, ourselves perhaps? Thank you, John, let's add a smile to the gloom, we're not beaten!

  24. So am I. In today's world, there would be a man in the bushes behind that girl.

  25. I am going to focus on the tail wag when I walk through the door.
    It gives me positively HAPPY . . .

  26. I am optimistic that things will get better but realistic enough to know that it will not be happening any time soon in the USA.....it's just the way it is for now.

  27. My husband died suddenly. Couple of years ago.
    I moved to Florida to be closer to family .
    The day after I arrived in Florida, my Mom died.
    I have impressed myself that I not only get up each day but I make plans and look forward to my days.
    I no longer take some things for granted.
    Good days are a gift, don't waste them.

  28. I totally agree with "Bee Lady" about living in your own bubble. I used to say this to my husband years ago and he used to disagree with me and say it's not right to do that. He has definitely changed this mind now and it DOES help.

  29. Optimism ... is that something akin to -
    "Go forth with confidence - but keep yer powder dry"?

    Cheers, D
