“An optimist stays up to see the New Year . A pessimist waits to make sure the old one leaves.”
~ Bill Vaughn.
In that case, I am constrained to invent a new word – Pessoptimism to describe my present condition.
Because, I stay up for both nowadays. I just have to replace the word Year with Situation. The pessimist in me has to win as a precondition for the optimist in me to come alive.
