The trap of cynicism

As we grow older, innocent enthusiasm begins to wane and it's often hard to be all pumped up about an upcoming event, a change in situation or a new beginning. Chances are, we've already “been there and done that” right?
This form of pragmatism while quite useful in many instances can also be a downer and often brings too much cynicism into our lives. Because of this, it's too easy to becoming and old crank and someone who sees the glass half empty. We need to be able to balance that form of somber realism with a bright outlook and make plenty of room for hope into the picture. We need that and a healthy pursuit of living demands it too. Something to keep in mind more and more as maturity sets in!
