    Looks like some people have been smoking from the giant ganja doobie today. Sure, life is great if you're stoned but it's never a good idea to get high and then post on the net.

    is amazing.

    Be thankful to just be living.
    Be thankful for what you have.
    I feel that people are too 'busy' too caught up in their own lives to even give it a second thought. No one should ever be too busy. Take a step back and take a breath of gratitude. For real, actually take a step back and look at life. I can never stress it enough.
    You get to experience this amazing, amazing thing called life.
    It doesn't matter to what or whom you are grateful.

    Try it. If you really do mean it, it gives you this new kind of oxygen, if you will. Oxygen filled with unconditional love for your life, for other people, the world. Something different. It will energize you with life.

    I luckily have the awesome skill where music can really set the mood and it takes me on a journey of gratitude.

    So so alive, so real, that it gives you a surreal kind of feel, so amazing. So refreshing.

    Give it up for life.

    This is probably one of the great truths I have ever read...

    One year ago I was the polar opposite of this. I finally got sick of it and decided to do something about it. My journey began in February of this year and was not without its bumps and setbacks but Pride Weekend proved to be one turning point and then August here was where the really amazing progress began. I've been through a lot of pain, but I refuse to be a victim - ever and I refuse to ever let pain and negativity win by being bitter and jaded. Instead I find ways to be kind and compassionate to others using my experience.

    I really took a good look at myself and at my life and realized I and only I have the power and responsibility to discard those things that are messing it up, including my attitude. I changed the things about myself that kept me from loving myself - most of which was crap other people had willfully deposited in my head. I took myself on and determined to be the man I am, not bits and pieces of what the world or someone else thinks I ought to be.

    My win-loss record for the day is now VERY solidly in the win column. I have a career after losing it all, I have my OWN apartment for the first time in 10 years and for the first time ever, my own Christmas Tree. None of it is the flashiest but it is mine and I am thankful. I have this unshakable feeling of joy and optimism that I never imagined and for the first time in my life I am proud of who I am.

    This all began with doing exactly what the OP says... I know there are a lot of hurting people out there and this is one tough time of year. Be encouraged. Your best days are in front of you if you so choose.

    This post reminds me of a situation that happened in my hometown a few years ago. An 18 year old died in a motorcycle accident and his father was quoted as saying, "I take solace in the fact that he died doing what he loved. No one is guaranteed a tomorrow."

    That quote has always resonated with me. Whenever I get stressed or down about something, I remember that father's quote. Life is finite. Spend it doing what you love.

    Sometimes you make me giggle when you have your pants on, instead of off. This is one of those times. icon_biggrin.gif

    Exactly. I think it's funny how those tooting about how amazing life is will turn on you if you don't agree with them.

    I didn't' turn on you'. I just figured if you were going to be sarcastic or quite the opposite on a positive post that i take serious such as this one, that i might as well reply with a 'cool.'
