In a Bumper Sticker Mood

"Happiness is an attitude.
We either make ourselves
miserable or happy and strong.

The amount of work is the same."
-----Francesca Reigler

That last line is the zinger (for me, anyway). I know it's true (at least in theory), but when you are in the miserable place, it feels like a tremendous amount of work to simply maintain the place you are in and not to get sucked further down into the gak (not a medical term).

So really, if you think of attitude as being on a continuum, it would seem that it would take twice the effort to make it to the sunny side of life.

Well, good. I'll take that as validation.
