Optimism – Something I generally lack.

This year for the A to Z challenge, I was not overtly optimistic. It’s hard for me to do that but I managed it. Seems like I did it with good reason, at least on half of the goal. You see not only are we supposed to write one blog per day except Sundays alphabetically, we’re also supposed to visit the blogs participating. Well I nailed that second half. I visited everyone listed. A few weren’t updated, I still looked around. A couple wanted me to log on, sorry no joy there.

I want to say though, so many different blogs this year. Poetry, Stories, Randomness, scrap booking, and my favorite thing food. I am seeing peoples favorite architecture, learning about sciency things…. new words, new ideas. I even am having to see old things in a new light which takes some work. I’m feeling good about this.

On the side of Optimistic thoughts, well Blogging is good for you. It helps you work things out in your own mind. Lets you reach out to the world on your own terms. in my case, it’s quietly and anonymously. I also Stream Video games, also somewhat anonymously I use my Gaming name. That’s not as personal though since I’m talking about the game for the most part. Soon I will be talking about a fundraiser though that involves my streaming. I am optimistic that I will raise my goal again. I have the last two years. I can do it again.

Finally I’m half way through hitting the daily posting goal. Letter “O” is right here right now. Then there is my adding movies for the heck of it.. i could write about movies everyday but, I want to expand what I focus on. That being said… today’s movie is One of our Dinosaurs is missing… which isn’t great and is a bit dated and certainly has some issues in today’s world. But as a kid i liked it, probably because of the Dinosaur idea.

  1. I think the current state of the world does make it harder to be optimistic. Heck, you don’t even need to listen to the national news. The area I live they seem to be pulling a dead body a week. It used to be difficult to be optimistic. But for the last four years, I cut down on how much news I watch. Just half hour of it enough to depress you. Now, I only watch my local news once a week and try to focus on the good things around me.
    I’ll have to check out the Dinosaur movie. I’ve neve heard of it.

  2. I’ve been trying to work my way down the list of participants this year for the challenge. It is a way shorter list than the last time I did the challenge when it was close to 2000 blogs participating. I was not optimistic about visiting everyone back then. Some of the blogs are so hard to maneuver around to find where their posts are. I am not optimistic with those that I can leave a comment. We’re more than halfway done now so I’m optimistic we will both finish the challenge strong this year!
