“I never personally considered myself an optimist.  And I have dark days…but it’s just about reminding yourself that there are so many tiny little awesome things in life.”   –Neil Pasricha

“I’m not intentionally trying to be positive.  I’m just trying to be real.” –Andy Grammer

“I am not suggesting that you put on rose colored glasses to try and make the world look better.  I plea that we stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight.”     -President Gordon B. Hinckley

I love all these quotes.  Being optimistic doesn’t mean we never experience pain.  It doesn’t mean we pretend those things aren’t real.  It means that maybe we can choose to be happy despite the pain, and that maybe there still are good things to come.  Now just one final question…can I still wear these?
