I remember where I've heard the phrase 'pursuit of happiness' before....

I've been feeling pretty happy recently. Oddly. With the shit storms I've been experiencing lately, I'm impressed with my ability to center and disallow pain.

Being honest with myself might not make me popular, but it sure does make me feel better most of the time. It also helps me focus on what is really important; the future. Sure Columbine sucked, but there's nothing I can do about it now, let me know how I can help crazy teenagers in pain find better ways to cope. Sure, 9/11 sucked, hard, but instead of dwelling I want to know how we can better the world so that no one ever feels the need to kill innocents for political gain. Huricane Katrina showed us only half of nature's force, understanding the scientific and political failures involved in that tragedy that needent have been will help us move forward to a safer america. I have made mistakes, and done really stupid things, I have trusted people I should not have, and have been betrayed and lied to more than I'd like to admit. I need to be happy about those things, I need to look to the future to not only protect myself and those I love, but to create for myself a life that is better each day than the one before it.
