Are you speaking for Tiff? She might say attention to part of it.

No I'm not speaking for Tiff. I'm just saying that life has a way of rubbing off some of the glow of a persons rose colored glasses.

The trick to what life throws at you and how it affects you is as you go through life don't let the natural tendency of cynicism overtake your entire way of thinking.

Being too cynical is worse than going through life never seeing anything but my little pony rainbows with unicorns prancing across them.

Yes it is about finding a balance.

It is nice to be positive but being realistic is also nice.

Bingo ! It took me a while before I stumbled across that simple truth.

A person needs positivity in their way of thinking and the way you approach life situations.

But you also have to have the strength of character to make the tough decisions in life that demand a firm base in reality.
