The economic crisis is on our minds and the effects are felt on our wallets. The level of crime is more than a bit worrisome, I agree. But there is something in that glass. It may not seem half full (in some cases), but it’s definitely not empty! For some of us, it’s actually ¾ full, but we continue to lament that ¼. We all need to remember that somewhere, someone has it harder than we do. A little optimism can sometimes make the day a whole lot better!

Some things that make me smile:

1) People who give their seats up to older folk

2) Courteous drivers

3) Fathers who take an interest in their kids

4) People who can’t dance but do it nonetheless. And they don’t care what you think!

5) People who inconvenience themselves for others

6) When your team dominates the UEFA Champions league ;-)

7) Young people who work hard (e.g my staff J)

8) “Thank you” “Excuse me” I beg your pardon” Yup…they’re still around

9) Young men who do not collapse under pressure but choose the straight and narrow

10) The color yellow

11) Women who run foster homes just for the love of kids

12) Families that stick together!

13) The sound of children’s laughter, the sight of them at play

14) Melissa Pierre, Mechell Sampson, Natasha Thomas, Lecah Goddard, Christopher Garcia, Sarah Seepersad, Kevon Jordon. These young people wake up early on Saturday mornings to raise funds for community projects.

15) Celebrities who remain down to earth despite their millions

16) Ms. California’s response to Perez’s question

17) When everyday people get the opportunity to realize their dreams!! You go Grandma Lee! (America’s Got Talent)
