be happy

Why not?
Life throws so many wacky things at us, tries to kill us, seems to delight in our misfortunes... but, that's the way it goes. So I have learned to seek silver linings and ignore (as best I can) the inevitable turd in the punch bowl.
So far 2010 has been a series of calamities, garnished with some truly heartbreaking events for me personally and also in the world. But through it all I have seen the most amazing evidence of love and compassion. And that is a beautiful thing.

Sorry 2010 has started off rough. Hang in there kid! BTW, I really like the picture/collage. Is it digital? Very cool.

My heart hurts for you...that year 2010 has been hard so far. But good for you for seeking the silver lining:) I lived through one of the roughest years for me in 2009. So, hang in there! Wishing you well and sunny days from now on:)

It does sound like you've had a tough start to the year...but your positive outlook will help you through more than you think.
Love and compassion are all around us..even when things look bleek, there's still probably something to be optimistic about..

But if we're such a wise species, why did people ever move to the Arctic?
