Well the first days are the hardest days, don’t you worry any more,

Today marks the first day of my journaling the forward track of my life, and I’ll try to not worry anymore. Having gone through more than I thought I could handle, I thank those who have been there to help me overcome the past year. While many of my closest friends were dealing with issues of their own, I turned to family. My family was more than willing to help but all they could do is listen as they were several hundred miles away. More often than not, an ear was enough.

On a positive note, I had many people who have been most helpful and may not even realize it. The law enforcement and detectives, school officials, health care professionals, and other driving forces have given their time, compassion and commitment to helping in any way they could. So many people have shown what true humanity is by going above and beyond their call of duty. From school teachers meeting with me on a regular basis to friends convincing me “I could do it”.

I have much to be thankful for now and optimism has played a huge role in that. I have a hard time differentiating optimism from ego or strong marketing skills. I guess they all connect in one way or another.

Over the weekend I reconnected with a good friend who I would often ask, “How can you be so happy all the time?” and he would always reply with a big smile, “What is the alternative?”

Sometimes I worry that I am not worried. Sometimes I just wonder…
