I try to be optimistic in day to day affairs while maintaining a realistic view on the world. I used to be very pessimistic but I've learned that life is too short to be negative all the time for no other reason than being negative. Live life to the fullest and let nothing stand between you and your dreams. Encouraging this in myself and others is a nice way to go about life instead of telling someone they can't do something.
Important topic: Faith. I currently don't believe in a God or Gods. I know this is a deal breaker for a lot of people and I can understand not wanting to date a person that doesn't believe in something you take very seriously. That being said, I was raised Catholic and was a practicing Catholic until I quit believing in something that chose not to help me in situations when I needed help. Perhaps I am wrong, I'm willing to admit I don't know. My atheist view isn't set in stone. Maybe I need a good Christian girl to open my eyes?
