My intent. Is to cultivate a positive attitude. For the rest
of my life. Even when I feel down. I’m pledged to getting back up again. I
can’t live any other way. I was born to be happy. Even during difficult times.

Invigorated. Sometimes without a plan. By letting things happen. Naturally.
Knowing. That no matter what. I’ll proceed with a positive attitude. Because I
am in love. I know from experience, too. That the bad days are few and far
between. And I’ve always recovered from a bad day. And here I am. On the first
day of spring. The end of winter. But it really doesn’t matter. I like all seasons.
Being alive and conscious. Is more than sufficient. For me to make the best of

Of course, it’s easier for me to persuade me to be happy. Than it would be for
me to convince some of my obstinate unhappy friends to feign happiness. Though
I occasionally accept the challenge. After all, it’s an extraordinary opportunity for me to practice my skills as a brilliant
and natural born psychotherapist. --Jim
