as a genetically predisposed optimist, i'm not always prepared for the shadow days.
not always prepared for darkenss... 
or for hard things.
bad stuff frequently surprises me.
as if, by being born with a happy outlook, 
when confronted with something not so happy, 
i am unprepared.
so the advantage of being a pessimist is being prepared 
for the negative, bad, unhappy, hard bits.
i'd rather keep traveling towards the light....
and deal with the surprises as they arrive.

optimist or pessimist? 
which are you?
i actually have a great big dose of pragmatist too.
i am pretty of matter o' fact.
a matter o' fact optimist.
