Seeing the World from a Different Perspective

I have been trying to look at the good in things recently. I have been trying to do the things that make me happy instead of sitting around doing nothing at all. I have been in a funk for a long time, and I couldn't find my way out. Things have been looking up, and I have been seeing more and more of the old me peaking out now and then.

How many times can I say "I" in one paragraph? That brings me to the other side of me. The side that took initiative to help out others. The side that wasn't all about me, me, me. The side that was compassionate of the feelings around me. Happy and compassionate. I miss that side of me. I need to start seeing the world differently. It's not all about me, but doing things that make me happy is one step in the right direction. No one likes a sourpuss bringing them down. When I am done working on "me" I can focus on that resolution over there <---- on the side bar and start helping others again.

One step at a time, that is the best we can do sometimes.

My motivation for the past couple of weeks: Erin Vey She takes pretty pictures of dogs.

You could do a good thing for me and move down here. That could accomplish your goal. I'm not so sure how much I like you talking about "compassion," it gives me a bad feeling in my stomach like you are turning liberal or something. Just tell me again that you are not in favor of the stimulus bill, I just need to hear it again. I donate blood. Thats the only thing I am doing this year to "help others," I figure I help others enough with the $37,000 in income taxes I personally had to fork over.
