    It would just be a coincidence. Or dumb luck.

    No, a positive attitude trumps all of that.

    Not for me. Last time I had a positive attitude about something it ended up with me short $600 and spending half a day at an abortion clinic. Never again.

    I believe this more than you can ever imagine, yet I turn it inward and it comes out that life can be good.

    Not living for your kids good, or financial wealth good, but just good for you.

    You only have one life.

    Be thoughtful and trustful and childlike,
    Be witty and happy and wise,
    Be honest and love all your neighbours,
    Be obsequious, purple, and clairvoyant.

    Be pompous, obese, and eat cactus,
    Be dull, and boring, and omnipresent,
    Criticize things you don't know about,
    Be oblong and have your knees removed.

    Be tasteless, rude, and offensive,
    Live in a swamp and be three dimentional,
    Put a live chicken in your underwear,
    Get all excited and go to a yawning festival.

    O.K. everybody!

    Be courteous, kind and forgiving,
    Be gentle and peaceful each day,
    Be warm and human and grateful,
    And have a good thing to say.

    Be thoughtful and trustful and childlike,
    (O.K. everybody on this!)
    Be witty and happy and wise,
    Be honest and love all your neighbours,
    Be obsequious, purple, and clairvoyant.
    (Let 'em hear you outside!)

    Be pompous, obese, and eat cactus,
    (Everybody sing!)
    Be dull, and boring, and omnipresent,
    Criticize things you don't know about,
    Be oblong and have your knees removed.

    (Ladies only)
    Be tasteless, rude, and offensive,
    (Now the men)
    Live in a swamp and be three dimentional,
    (Everybody)
    Put a live chicken in your underwear,
    Go into a closet and suck eggs.

    although i like optimistic people, some take it too far, and i have goofed on a few optimists in my day. they can be so wrong, and head so gleefully into the maw of disaster , that it got annoying after awhile. especially when it involved me expending time and effort on something that is clearly a dog. well, clear to all but die hard optimists. bring up something that isn't in lock step with what they believe will happen, and you are not a team player. :jj:

    i'm sure during the bombing of dresden, some optimist was all; don't worry helga, it's just thunder!
