I liked the post about staying positive in a bad economy and especially the point about tuning out the bad news. I do that all the time. Ignorance is truly bliss.
I recently read Peaks and Valleys by Spencer Johnson, the author of Who Moved My Cheese? I would recommend it to anyone struggling through this economy and lost for ways to stay positive.
