A couple of weeks ago a freind said to me that I always saw the bottle as half full.Well there seems to be so many people round just focusing on the neagatives.People that have so much and are still complaining.I'm grateful for everything I've got, (which is a lot less than some of these people) A lot of of people taht I come in contact with donn't seem to appreciate anything.

Over the years, I've learned that I get along a lot better, if I don't listen to other people! Everybody says you should do this, and you should do that! Other people just spend all their time complaining about everything, and don't do nothing to change it or themselves! I've just learned to listen to myself most of the time, except when I really do need help! I've learned to not be influenced by people that complain, and people that critizise! I just do my thing, and be thankful that I am alive, and able to help myself, complain about the things I think one should complain about, and offer help to those who need it!

Yes, I know what you mean. Some people need a good slap so they wake up to themselves. I see people accumulating stuff and discarding it and never satisfied. I see others complaining and whingeing because the government don't give them enough when they are bloody lucky to get anything at all. Me, I'm happily content for my life and thankful for all that I have. I'm not wealthy but I have some riches in my animals and my little house and garden.

You have a very good view of life. Yes, we should all be grateful to the world. Those who focus on the bright side of things are the most smart of all. Nobody's perfect. Everyone has some problems and some of them may never be solved. But we have to accept it as it is. Why don't we choose to be happy since nobody has a perfect life? At least I'm content with everything that life has to offer. :)
