Musings on life, Death, and Everything in Between, Part II

You know something? I could write at least five paragraphs about how miserable I've been the last couple of months, but I don't want to. Instead of talking about my issues and problems and fears, I wanna talk about what I decided to do about this crisis. Yes, life is tough, but I still believe from the bottom of my heart that happiness is always the better choice.

And I choose happiness.

I'm not exactly there yet, but that's where I'm headed. I once heard the phrase "what happiness doesn't have in length it compensates in height", or something similar, and it touched me. I wanna be happy, and to do that I must take charge and let go of my stupid pride. So that's where I'm headed to. I have to be strong, and I know I can do it. I think all of us Pajibans can testify that the strength of the human spirit can move mountains, as evidenced by 'Bama's struggle. And I'd like to thank her for the lesson she taught me, the lesson she taught us all: be strong, and if you're going to whine, don't. Have a sense of humor about yourself and keep going. Life is too short to be a drama queen. 'Tis better to be a Queen of Hearts.

I guess it's better to be happy that she lived than it is to be sad that she passed away. Good luck with your own happiness!
