I think I can! haha Since last week, I really have had so many bad lucks! It was but last week, I lost my mobilephone! Someone just backbit me so as to strive for some merit the day before yesterday and she got the merit after all somehow! Well, I scratched my hand yesterday though the cut wasn't that big! But it is not a big deal, I guess! Time flies, time heals all wounds! All any of us wants is more time, time to stand up, time to grow up, time to let it go, time... What's that saying? After rain comes the sunshine. So, I am waiting for tomorrow's sunshine now! How do you deal with bad lucks? If it never rains but pours, can you still carm yourself down and keep happy?

I think not!!! obviously, it is hard to keep yourself happy when there are bad things happening around you. Well, if you will put your trust in God it would help you to keep calm but not happy in that bad situation. Maybe the worry and sadness would be reduced but still impossible to keep happy disposition. Maybe in a relax mood yeah, you can but to be happy? quite impossible.

At least, you don't have to think about it all the time. When you turn your mind to other interesting things, you can smile as happy as any other day!

I doubt that. Well,yeah I can still be. I didn't mean to say that i will not be worried of i am but you see being stressed-out and depressed to your problems won't help you answer it,instead it would just worsen the situation.

Oh, rather than stand by a pond longing for fish, one should take practical steps to achieve one's aims

I have always had a series of things happen to me that seem to always be pushing me down. I just have to strive to get back up again and know that these things can't keep me down forever. Just yesterday I was trying to install linux onto my EeePC 4G Surf. I'm currently using someone else's computer until I can cool off and figure out a way to get it on there. A series of events occurred that made me madder than mad can get. And I have a tendency to blow up on others when I get upset over something! heh. That's all we can ever do: Cool off, think positively, and be patient.

At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out. They fence you in. Life is messy. That's how we're made.We can waste our life, drawing lines, or, you can live our life crossing them. But there are some lines......that are way too dangerous to cross. But here's what I know. If you're willing to take the chance...the view from the other side is spectacular. May you come into a good fortune! Good luck, good health, hood cheer. I wish you a happy new life.

I would be a hypocrite if I'd say I can still be happy amidst the unfortunate events happening to me. But, well, happiness is a choice. Happiness depends on one's perspective. It's a state of mind. If there is nothing that can be done about something then why waste time mopping about it? There is so much beauty around to enjoy. Losta reasons to smile.

We are often faced with the two opposite aspects of a thing which are both desirable like newspaper cutting. It often occurs that our attention is drawn to one thing only after we are engaged in another. The former may be more important than the latter and give rise to a divided mind. When one door shtus, another opens in life.

We are all emotional beings.Undoubtedly,you are optimistic.In other words,your EQ is high.I couldn't keep myself happy if I had so much trouble.Everyone should practice optimism.Increasing optimism is easy if we practice it.Always see the good in a dad situation,see the positives in every negtive.

My life for the past three years has beena series of bad luck. I wont bore you with the details, but just as things seem to be looking up, something else goes wrong, like divorce, or accusations. I would have normally agreed that time heals all wounds, but after the stuff i have gone through (and i know I could have it worse) it ishard to keep that mentality. I give you props for staying so positive, I really try t but it is hard sometimes

Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankfu that the grass is getting watered for free. Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do some homework or I can feel honored because god has provided something for me to enrich my mind. God bless you too!

Hi hiddenwing, You are optimistic, and I like you on this point. For me, I think sometimes, I behave a little pessimistic. I know, it is the character's problem. But anyway, I'd like to learn from you about this. Can you share with us how do you comfort you when faced with bad lucks? Thank you for your topic!

Mcdonad's are my comfortable food. haha It is so easy to waste our lives, our days, our hours, our minutes worrying. It is so easy to take for granted the colour of your eyes, the way the melody in a symphony rises and falls and disappears and rises again. I have so many dreams in my mind. Some of them are just too hard to reach. For example, I'm wondering to take an economic class taught by Yale professor Benjamin, and I'm thinking of signing up for courses in electrical engineering at MIT, computer programming at Stanford, chemistry at Princeton, climate change policy at Berkeley and medical science at Dartmouth. But how? Can I really make it in the future? Whatever! I learned to love the journey, not the destination. At least, I will definately come closer to Harvard! haha

Hey hiddenwing! You are the second person that I am responding to tonight that has lost their mobile phone! I think that this is getting to be more and more common! There has to be a better way to keep track of these very important, but very tiny devices so that so many people do not keep losing them! I myself have now gotten a much smaller model of a mobile phone and am very afraid that this will happen to me too! I have had a big clumsy phone for so many years now and I will be using a much tinier model and am very afraid that I will also be misplacing it! But, if this is the most tragic thing that happens to us then we are going to be just fine! A phone can always be replaced, as you know!

Without discarding the old there would be no coming of the new, haha. Future is always unknown to us, but to some extent we can forsee what will most likely come out. We can strive for the best. Wise people learn from that bad lucks and try to arrange for the future. They are always making preparations so as to jump on a future chance. They know where they are and expect where they will arrie in the future. Just like the saying goes, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. On the other hand, idle people do not seem to give serious thoughts about the future. They are just like floating leaves, drifting aimlessly. The best place they can get to is where the tide carries thorn. Worrying will never do any good. As long as one is sensible and does one's best to keep happy, one can expect a bright future or at least avoid something unpleasant. Take care!

I shift my mode, if im down, i associate myself to a positive thought, person or actions. or i journal it but since i have this, mylot, i post here my negative emotions or thoughts, then a lot of people sharing with kind words or some advices. or sometimes, from reading about other people stories, you will say to yourself, your lucky than them

Think back to a time in your life when you felt inspired and excited to make a significant change. Did you go for it of did your inner obstacles get in the way? You can't build a solid hourse on a foundation of clay and debris, and the same truth holds for your success. Now what, I hope that you will be successful anyway!

I do have to do be happy least of my series of bad lucks if that happens to me. There is nothing more important in those times maybe but I had all the experiences to learn from them. Happiness endures everything that are sad for me that is why I always react happy even if those badlucks seem to break me.

What really matters is that you creat a space in your consciousness for appreciation for all that you have right now, so that you may live more joyously in your present moment. I hope ench endeavour of you will be a great success in the future.

Many people believe that they will happy once they arrive at some specific goal they have set for themselves. For some the goal may be amassing a million dollars, for others losig those annoying then-plus pounds, and for still others it is finding a soulmate. It could be getting a better job, driving a nicer car, or pursuing a dream carees. Whatever your "there" is, you may be convinced that once you arrive, you will finally find the peace you have always dreamed of. It turned out that most people changed their aim when they got there. So, when will they be happy after all? Well, I don't know about that. Anyway, I enjoy the progress of my dreams though there have been so many up and downs. Take care

You most definitely CAN keep happy when you get a run of bad luck because the run has to end eventually! I also believe strongly in the Law of Attraction, so if I maintain positive thoughts, then I stand a better chance of attracting positivity in return. Which of course means the same will happen if I get all caught up in the negativity of the supposed bad luck. As far as I'm concerned, more negativity will come my way if I get consumed by it in the first place. Every cloud has a silver lining, tomorrow IS another day and yes, rain does come after the sunshine and behind every dark rain cloud, there's still a shining sun! We just have to believe it's there and it will show itself in time.

"I maintain positive thoughts, then I stand a better chance of attracting positivity in return. " I found another very classical sensense just like I read in books. I want the future to be better than the past.I don't want it contaminated by the mistakes and errors with which the history is filled.We should all be concerned about the future because that is where we will spend the remainder of our lives. haha

If you would ask me if I can still be happy if I had a series of bad lucks. I can say I can. Because if I have bad lucks and if I'm in a bad mood there's nothings gonna change it makes it more worst. Because of that I keep myself happy even bad lucks come. I also keep my self busy for me to forget the bad thing I have experience. For me keeping myself busy is one way of forgetting bad experience.

If you resort some bad to to hard work, you will make a progress! For what it's worth, you become more knowledgable or capable.

I'm a optimistic person actually,but I would be depressed when I have a series of bad lucks!Those who would be calm when there always comes bad lucks?But I think the later adjustment is very important.I will hold the belief that some more lucky things might happen later on,all the bad lucks I have suffered are not so bad and have no important influence on my life.Then I will feel happy~

The past is gone and static.Nothing we can do will change it.The future is before us and dynamic.Everything we do can affect it.Every day brings with it new frontiers,in our homes and in our businesses,if we will only recognize them. Just keep going!

i just noticed that for the past three years of my life, i had a series of bad lucks, but the thing is i don't believe in such things. i don't believe in luck cause for me it's more of consequences than being like a dice, odds or even. but no matter how hard life had been for me, i will not surrender, i am not! i am not weak as anybody thought of me. i'll strive and no matter how many times i fall down, i know how to get back to my knees and keep walking forward cause that's the only way i know i have to go. forward....to the future!
