    I have been in enough tight spots poised on the edge of destruction in my life to fill a million books, so i do empathise, I don't accept defeat though. I CHOOSE LIFE.

    "If you're going through hell... keep going."  Winston Churchill.

    I've lived through a few hells myself, and believe it or not, I think the fact that I've been through so much and survived it has made me MORE cheerful.

    It's easy to be cynical when everything comes easily to you, and you rarely have to work to get what you want.

    But when you find out how much you can accomplish (because you HAVE to) it can really make you feel good.  That and knowing that you're still alive...

    I'm happy because I've learned to enjoy every little bit of beauty and love that comes my way.  I cherish every good moment, because sometimes they were few and far between.

    If everything comes easily, then nothing is of any value.  But if you have to work your ASS off to get what you can, you value it highly, and are grateful.

    At least that's been my experience.
