I’m going to go out on a limb here and say it’s all about attitude. Maybe add an anecdotal aside from some study thing that I heard once that happy people live longer, have better lives and more friends and whatever too.

There’s a great couple paragraphs in Hillenbrand’s “Unbroken” that compares and contrasts this kind of behavior. I would love to quote from the book, but since I lent my copy out to someone at the moment, and because it may spoil part of the book (which you ALL should read [seriously, it’s amazing] ), I won’t.

I got a late gift card from a friend which has allowed me to purchase a series of anime called “Birdy the Mighty: Decode” It’s directed by Kazuki Akane, the man responsible for making some crazy awesome anime titles in the past (Escaflowne, Heat Guy J, Noein, [all crazy names too. Gotta love ’em] ) I picked “Birdy” up mostly due to Akane’s name being attached to it. Tommy has also said that “it is AMAZING!” so there we go.
