Over the weekend I found out I was miserable. Well, at least Forbes Magazine said as much in this article. Forbes~ Most Miserable Cities in the US.

I live in the 9th MOST miserable city in the country.

The number ONE MOST miserable city is a mere 60 miles north of me.

Number twelve is 15 miles north of me and number eighteen is 60 miles to my East.

Since I’m living in and surrounded by misery, my mind told me that I MUST BE MISERABLE. As the local pundits have beaten the issue to death locally over the weekend, I have laughed. I have always laughed in the face of adversity, and I will continue to do so.

If you want to see misery, go to a clinic where people are waiting for an organ transplant, or have cancer or are in end stage renal failure. Or, maybe in a war zone where men and women die in an instant. That’s misery

I like this quote ~

“Contemplation often makes life miserable. We should act more, think less, and stop watching ourselves live.” ~ Chamfort
In other words, lets laugh and live and quit labeling us all of the time.
Life is good and you’ll never prove to me it isn’t!!!!
Does this look like misery to you?

I'M HAPPY!!!!!

    Congratulations on your heart transplant too! I see that we are very similarly “aged.” What a ride, huh?

    Thanks for adding my site to your list. I’ve also added yours to my reader.

    I agree life is good !! After an 11-year battle with heart disease, a heart transplant, and working for a law enforcement agency, I’ve come to realize that any day you don’t spend in jail or in the hospital is a good one. I also believe that ICU, CCU, and a jail cell are one in the same.
