IMO - I am happy with my life if I look at a 3rd world country that I am lucky enuff to have had no part of, happy with my life if I Iook at homeless shelters, soup kitchens, mental wards, prison, permanent rehab hospitals, etc that I am lucky enuff to have had no part of. happy for the family who loves me, the wonderful man who loves me, the fact that I can breathe, walk, love back, learn from my mistakes.... I am happy with my life if I look at those who only wish they had my sorrow, my pain, etc. because it came with a roof over my head, food, clothes... If one has anything other than what we see in media about the 3rd world countries, the war ravaged areas, the homeless shelters, the domestic violence, abandoned children, unemployment, no education, etc. - how can we complain about any aspect of life? For that reason, I am fine with my life up til now and on a good route going forward.
Happy New Years USA, Bless us all. :)
