If you're not participating in the recovery, keep your troubles talk to yourself. The rest of us are euphoric that the gains we have made in our businesses during the past few quarters look like they are here to stay.

It's time to continue to make money. And no negative folks are going to pull us down. Yesterday, a neighbor was getting ready to discuss her high prescription bill. Polite, I offered a few suggestions for help. It was all "yes, but" on her part. Still polite but firm I said I had to go.

Stuck in the dark paradigms of hand-wringing and fear? You are going to be left behind in this recovery.
