    The Happy and Optimistic Thread

    To be fair, while there are a lot of douchebags and crazed fundamentalists around, there are nice people everywhere; you just have to look longer and harder to see them than the bastards. Most people don't want to hurt you, and people who you really value are precious because they're so rare, like an exclusive and beautiful piece of art. There are moments in life that make it worth living all the time, from the simplest little things (the sun setting in the distance as the cool wind whispers through the trees) to the grandest things (the Parthenon and the glories of architecture and human achievement and science and the new diversity of culture everywhere). So just because there are sometimes bad days, don't forget that life is beautiful, and that there's a million and one things to live for. Sex, wine, music, friendship, art, to name a few. People can achieve great things - alone, or working together - and the future is not predetermined.

    Of course! Perspective and attitude are SO important to being happy. Once one has access to average sustenence, protection, and physical/mental health, I'd argue it's on them if they aren't enjoying life. All they need is a change in attitude (often from a friend or family member) to find the way to happiness.

    Maybe a harsh generalization but I think it applies in many cases.

    We should change the thread name to the sarcasm thread.

    See what you people have done to me...

    Anyway, I AM optimistic. Let's talk about hope: Hope is like a lottery ticket. Even if your chances are 1 in a million, better to keep in in your pocket than throw it away!
