THE END IS NEAR (maybe)

I’ve always been an optimistic person.  Even when things are total shit in my life, I’m still happy to wake up on this side of the sod.   That’s what gets me about the people who obsess over the cloud the the silver lining is in.  A recovering doom peddler has this great article which makes so much sense (H/T BizzyBlog). 

It starts:

Hi, I’m Gary and I’m a recovering Apocaholic. I am currently Apocalypse free for nearly 18 years. I left the church of the Religious Apocalypse in 1976, over 30 years ago, and I resigned from the secular church of the Financial Apocalypse in 1989. Yes, I still feel the urge to proclaim the end of all things, from time to time, but I white-knuckle my way to a history book for a little perspective, and then I breathe easier. If you wish to join AA, the only requirement is that you give up the adrenaline rush of media-fed fantasies.

A must read for anyone tired of the naysayers.
