I want you to remember that the only non renewable resource is time. Therefore, if I am walking down the street and someone yells "faggot" and throws a bottle, they have stolen a few seconds of my life. If I am still worked up about them ten minutes later I am giving them the gift of my time. They don't deserve such gifts. Happiness is a CHOICE, it is not something one finds, it is something you choose and then BE. It is YOUR happy my friend, don't let any power have it.

So very true.

I recently read about a study that was done concerning facial expressions and the physical responses they cause. They used four groups in two pairs - one pair of the groups were either shown happy things that made them smile or were simply told to smile.

One of the groups in the other pair were shown unhappy things that would make them frown and the other group were simply told to frown. Both groups in the two pairs (the two groups in the happy pair and the two groups in the sad pair) had the same physical reactions in their heart rate etc. and the conclusion was drawn that we can influence our mood by whether we choose to frown or smile. If I can find the article online, I'll post a link here. My apologies if I didn't explain it very well.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Man oh man!  You put the power to it right there!

Thank you!
