Different ways to view the world

Sometimes, I'm happy for no reason. Or sad.

Probably a majority of the time, I view the world in a positive light. When I look at my life, I see good things, and hope.

Sometimes, and I look at the world in a negative light, sometimes for no reason at all. When I look at my life and the world in general, I don't see hope. I see all my inadequacies, and how sometimes you give your hardest, and you do everything you were supposed to, and things just get worse.

And sometimes, like right now, I view it as sort of a mix. I just watched one of the last episodes of 6 feet under, in which the, for all intents and purposes, the main character, Nate, as just died. This makes me incredibly sad to see all this pain in his family.
But, at the same time, I happen to be remembering a particularly good lunch I just had at The Cheesecake Factory with the whole swim team today. And that makes me happy.
So right now, I'm more PASSIONATE about the world than anything else. I have a lot of emotions right now, and they're not all good, nor all bad.

How do YOU feel about the world right now?

The world? I love the world,

The world? I love the world, as usual. It's a beautiful thing. I wanna get out and see everything. The things that usually catch my bad moods are the people living on our world- but after a nap I feel much happier than I was earlier. I'm happy to see you had fun today, Chad.
Always hold your head up high
If you don't, you'll never see the face of your killer.

The World..

I remember watching Six Feet Under when Nate died, that was sad. I didn't want to see Nate go. I can relate to your sadness for sure.

On a regular basis I would say that I am mostly optimistic about the world, or at least I try to be. I mean not to be a negative Nancy, but there really is a lot of negative aspects to the world, especially in today's society. It is a choice to not get weighed down by negative possibilities. I believe that if you want to live life in a positive way, then make the choice to do so. We all should try harder to not allow the media (in any form) to bring us down. Just my thoughts.
