Optimistic in March

A customer at work once said to me “please tell me your name is Sparkle.  If it’s not Sparkle, it totally should be”.  I was a little taken aback, as I don’t think of myself as particularly perky.  In fact, I kind of can’t stand Perky People.  But then, I went into the back office and one of my co-workers said “oh look, here comes Happy Camper.”  Hunh.

Are you a cock-eyed optimist?  A grumpy Eyeore?  Is your glass half-full or half-empty?

Although genetics dictates your emotional make-up, it is possible to learn coping mechanisms, and maybe even change your brain.  The library has books that can help.

If I'm not librarianing, or chasing one of my plethora of dogs around the yard, I probably have my nose buried in a book. I like all kinds of books. Regency romances - love 'em. Gory police procedurals - yes, ma'am. Historical fiction - please, and thank you. Heavy "literary" titles - shhhh, I may not have actually finished some of those! Off-beat, warped, slightly askew books - oh, yes, indeedy. Violent supernatural fantasy - why not? Chick lit, hen lit, lad lit - yeah, yeah, yeah. What have you read? Need a suggestion, or ten?
