Are you optimistic or pessimistic, and why?

Yesterday, during Session 2 of TED University at TEDGlobal 2011, host June Cohen asked: Are you optimistic or pessimistic. and why? and asked for answers of one sentence.

Since there is a little more room (and time) for writing on TED Conversations, answer in 1-3 sentences whether you are optimistic or pessimistic, and why.

    Jul 14 2011: First off, I must say I was pessimistic for a long time....but now I would answer optimistic. My reasoning is simple, life is too short to spend time wasted on negative energy. Life should be enjoyable and lived to it's fullest.
