cynical optimists

Cynical optimist: someone who is aware of what's going on around them, but chooses to remain optimistic and find happiness wherever it can be found; someone who's open to all the woo-woo positive stuff, as potential routes to happiness, but maintains a healthy level of cynicism (and a sense of humour) for balance; someone who insists on being happy and on spreading happiness to those around them.

Does that sound like you?
