I have taken a leave of absence from my favorite news channel. Or any news channel for that matter. I have had it with all of the doom and gloom. I have never been a "stick your head in the sand" kind of girl. I want to know what is going on and stay informed about what is happening in the world around me, but as of late I am on sabbatical from negative hype and this whole "crash and burn" mentality that is the national media.

I am in the middle of major life changes...career, church, home...heck we are even changing states. We have chosen the seemingly worst time to change careers, try several new ventures, sell a home and move to a new place. The media would love us to believe that we should all hunker down and freeze everything. Just hang on until the better times come. Bull stuff!! The people that are succeeding in their businesses right now are the ones who are approaching their clients with a positive attitude, encouraging them in their ventures and helping them believe that all is not bleak. The economy is a cycle and this is just part of it. The ups and downs, the ebb and flow...these are systems that are not new and what is currently down WILL go back up. We have to choose to live, grow, take chances and explore new territory regardless of what we see around us. Walt Disney created a whole magical world by believing in what he couldn't see with his eyes. And we can do the same if we will dare to be positive and choose to believe.
