It is better to be an outcast, a stranger in one’s own country, than an outcast from one’s self. It is better to see what is about to befall us and to resist than to retreat into the fantasies embraced by a nation of the blind.

Don't Worry, Be Happy

There are lots of ways of being miserable, but there's only one way of being comfortable, and that is to stop running round after happiness. If you make up your mind not to be happy there's no reason why you shouldn't have a fairly good time. - Edith Wharton

I've made the decision to do just that. Lusting after anything; whether it be money, love, and happiness, is frustration. Have you ever applied for a job when you really needed it? There is a desperation that is smelt by the panel. The best thing to do is dress down and act as if you really don't give a crap if you get the job. They will chase after you forever.

We try too hard for the things we really want. I'm convinced if we just think about what we want then it will come to us. Don't worry, be happy.

My honeyman. Because of what we've been through and faced together, I can personally testify with every fibre of my body, mind and spirit that happiness is what we were made for.

And oh!! - how abiding, glorious and steadfast has our happiness proven in the face of all our tests and trials and against all opposition and odds.

Shania Twain said it for me.

Looks like we made it
Look how far we've come my baby
We mighta took the long way
We knew we'd get there someday

They said, "I bet they'll never make it"
But just look at us holding on
We're still together still going strong

You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You're still the one I want for life
You're still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night

Ain't nothin' better
We beat the odds together
I'm glad we didn't listen
Look at what we would be missin'

They said, "I bet they'll never make it"
But just look at us holding on
We're still together still going strong

You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You're still the one I want for life
You're still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night

Bloody hell canuck. You are fast becoming one of my favourites. I think you and I have titled at some similar windmills and been knocked clean out of the saddle a few times; but we get back up. Cheers and good lucks.
