I drove though this storm yesterday and I think the dark cloud stayed. Sometimes being an optimist is difficult when everyone around you is negative. Mind you they are all dealing with major life issues, I get that, I do. Tomorrow I'm going on an endurance ride with a friend of mine and I cannot wait! Several hours of horse sweat, leather, sunshine, cool crisp fall air and good company is exactly what I need to collect myself and refocus! I cannot wait!
