Well lets just have a positivity fest. It’s too easy to enter a new year filled with good intentions and then by about the third day, today, those good intentions, vows and promises give way under the weight of habit. Brain Pickings published this list of seven books about optimism to help lift the weight. The weight that has us looking down, when up is better.

Every once in a while, we all get burned out. Sometimes, charred. And while a healthy dose of cynicism and skepticism may help us get by, it’s in those times that we need nothing more than to embrace life’s promise of positivity with open arms.
