Glad to be alive.

Far too often I catch myself in a negative mood about all sorts of things. Work didn’t go as well as it should have, squabbles with family or friends, bills piling up, and a recent back injury just to name a few. Start feeling like the worlds out to beat you down sometimes.

Then you start thinking, ok maybe this isn’t an ideal situation, but odds are there are plenty of folks out there in far more difficult situations trying to make the best of it. So many people just trying to scrape up a meal for their families, cancer patients going through horrendously painful treatments but doing their best to keep a positive outlook, and those living near militant zones in constant fear of what’s to come.

Perspectives a funny thing, I went from feeling all down and pouty to feeling like a selfish jerk pretty quick. Granted I’m still a work in progress, but I owe it to myself and the world at large to make the best out of whatever life throws my way. Hopefully this will encourage others to do the same!

I like to write. To observe human nature. To envision what the future might hold. Fingers crossed for immortality and friendly dragons capable of both speech and interstellar travel.

    Nothing wrong with down and pouty once in a while for a small while, as long as you don’t get all grumpy and play “who can I blame”. Some things, like injured backs require some down time in order to heal. It is not selfish to take care of your health. If you were a jerk, you would not be thinking about other folk at all.
    some people do have a worse life, some better, besides those are relative terms. Get your back healed up, get some therapy so you don’t injure it again, and then do something something ___________. You may fill in the blank yourself.:-) Except don’t be beating up on yourself on the days you already feel bad. Make yourself feel bad for feeling bad? Nope. Don’t do that.
