    Just sitting here thinking to myself.... live really is good. Sure there's been those dark times in my life, but they're all in the past. Now, I thank the Lord for what I have. Not to sit here and go on and on about what I don't have, I'm thanking for what I do have. And I don't want go on and on about what I do have either. I probably have more than some and less than others. I'm happy where I'm at in my life. I have my faults, who doesn't. We deal with them. But lately I've been looking past all the bad and focusing on the good, and I can honestly say I'm happier'n a bug in a rug. Life is good.

    I just wonder if anybody else feels the same as I do...

    Sure, but not by virtue of the Lord. In fact, the Lord made things worse for me when he was around.

    Every day I wake up, I realise how good life really is and how fortunate I am. Too many of my mates and colleagues can no longer say that.

    Yep. Life is good. It's some people that suck.

    Life has its moments, to be sure

    I'm not convinced that what is happening in my life totally determines how happy I am, though.

    Certainly very bad things can make me unhappy, or very good things can lift my spirits.

    But since my sense of happiness fluxuates when nothing has essantially changed, I'm fairly certain that how I feel at any given moment is a combination of my body chemistry AND my live's experiences.

    I have to agree. There is little that i want for. In a material sense, probably nothing.

    There are occassional nagging worries and the world at large needs some aroma therapy, but here inside Code-land, things are not bad at all.

    Fluctuates on a large scale, or small?

    Looking past Baby-Momma drama and semi-crazy family its true. Life is good.

    Its the small things. Holding my baby, having a beer and a cigarette, cooking steaks on the grill.

    Yeah, I live a pretty good life.
