Optimism vs. Pessimism

Two highly contrasting messages dropped into my mailbox this morning, illustrating the age-old tension between optimism and pessimism.

The first was my daughter Angie’s blog post for today. She writes about her experience in staying up most of the night reading the book, “The Secret,” by Rhonda Byrne.

Angie then comments on her own postive outlook on life, including this profound advice: “it reiterated to me in a very powerful & profound way, simple truths that i already knew & fully believe in my little angie heart: that i am a child of God, who loves me deeply and that i have infinite worth & potential …”

In stark contrast was a humorous, but somewhat disturbing Dilbert cartoon:

As for me, I’ll choose the optimistic approach. And I really needed that when I woke up this morning.
