"Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."
Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)
16th President of the United States
I'm happy to believe that much of the time what Old Abe says here is true, certainly I've known folks who seem like they wake up in the morning, look in the bathroom mirror and say "Man, I'm still not happy, looks like I'm gonna have to scowl and gripe all day today, man, this sucks…." or something along those lines…..
Mr. Lincoln didn't mean you can make happiness out of tragedy by snapping your fingers…but if you have old unhappiness, maybe you can let it slip away, especially if the other party has already forgotten it…
