I'm usually a pessimist because I never wanted to be dissapointed with anything or anyone. For example, my freshman year in college, I was going to be living off campus. I had no idea what my 4 other roommates were going to be like. I just figured I wouldn't get along with any of them and I'd have to find friends elsewhere. This thinking worked out great because when I got along with one of my roommates really well, I was so happy about it! Had I thought that I was going to get along with all of my roommates and it was going to be this happy apartment all the time, I would have been sorely dissapointed and frustrated.
However, I find that I am a true optimist when it comes to my time. I don't know how many of ya'll are like this but I think I can do it all. I can wake up in the morning, get dressed, give Landon his bottle, get him dressed and ready for the day, work out, come home and eat breakfast, take a shower, and be ready for whatever appointment, lesson, or work I have!!! It almost never works and I always find myself running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Even though I know I can't do it most days, I'm always doing it!!! I keep repeating this over and over again! I'm already thinking about tomorrow and if I can squeeze everything in before 10:45 when I have to pick someone up at the airport. I've thought about going to a gym class or just going to the gym, or just running (which I did this morning), or even getting some work done before 10:45 when I need to be at the airport.
Another example of my time optimism is thinking that things won't take as long as they really do. I ended up taking 2 1/2 hours doing something that I told John would only take me 1 1/2 hours. What was I thinking?? A half hour into it, I knew this was not 1 1/2 job. Or at work, I think I'll only be there for 2 hours because that's all the work I have to get done. 6 hours later, I'm finally going home.
Anyways, I'm glad that I'm an optimist with something.
