In the great question of cause and effect, I don’t know whether it was watching Pollyanna that sparked a sense of optimism in me or whether an innate optimism sparked a resonance with that movie. I suspect the latter. But either way, a sense of optimism has stayed with me and, according to friends and family, so has the Pollyanna archetype.
Election Day. Seems a most appropriate day to share this. Intense energies flowing through this day including a full moon, lunar eclipse, and Samhain. Yes, I know most folks celebrated this a week ago. But in the more indigenous calendar calculations, it’s today. Add to this the prayers of so many who hold and work with the Light. Huge power.
Some suggest that optimism is the madness of insisting that all is well when we are miserable. Some counsel us to choose optimism because it just feels better. Others view optimism as the one quality more associated with success and happiness than any other. It seems all are true. In a word, this word, there are so many energies. And all are reasons I choose to be optimistic.
