Freedom from Worry

Some of your hurts you have cured, and the sharpest you still have survived, but what torments of grief you've endured, from evils which never arrived. -Ralph Waldo Emerson   Has worrying ever done you any good? It hasn't ever done me any good. I wasn't always a worrier. Some people are born worriers, it's… Continue reading Freedom from Worry

Optimism

I'll tell you what optimism is, in a world where a fake issue of a real newspaper was distributed by activists, and went viral, and where the media got it wrong again, because they didn't check the facts, or get the complete story, before they ran with it, I realized I'd renewed subscriptions to a… Continue reading Optimism
