Irrational Optimist...That's Me

Seeing it in print makes me smile
Last week at the writers’ workshop with #1 New York Times Best Selling author, Grant Blackwood, I soaked up everything I could about writing, publishing and being successful in "the business" of writing. Grant was inspiring, engaging and generous with his wisdom - I am still percolating many of the lessons he shared.

One concept that he shared at the beginning of the workshop was that of the necessity of being an irrational optimist, and I am certain that it was at that moment I was hooked. I could relate. The terminology and related discussion resonated with me to my core. I am an irrational optimist. I have always been an irrational optimist. I believe that anything is possible and dreams will become reality; yes, there is work involved, but that is the journey we take on to achieve the goal and that journey is so much more enjoyable when faced as an irrational optimist.

I am all in as an irrational optimist…and anything is possible.
