I live in a fantasticaly beautiful place, with lovely people and have a 16 hour a week easy job and 3 months holiday per year and the prettiest partner around and she is brighter than me and good beer is less than 30 cents a bottle and I love every day - except for the slight twinge of sciatica that stops me sitting at this computer for longer than 10 minutes at a time !
ripplemaker, you always have such a sunny, positive attitude to life.
I know that over here in the UK that the cost of living and the hours some people have to work is crushing all the joy and creativity out of many people. And at the other end of the scale there are people with no hope of a job and no prospects, which is equally crushing for them.
How I love the title of this thread! I am sick of negativity:( Oh! I live every moment, every day, I am a tough task master and make it count. I choose to be happy and enjoy my every breathing moment!! I love life...I love life ..I can shout it out from the house tops.. I LIVE my life to the hilt!!!
