Everything is amazing, nobody is happy...



i'd like to interrupt your internet browsing to encourage you to watch the above video. it embodies a lot of what im feeling these days and i just had to share it. happiness is about perspective don't you think? i know some negative folks who could turn the most inconvenient nuance of their day into the biggest explosion of frustration and anger youve ever seen. it drives me batty! but in my effort to not control folks, im happily learning to just let it go and they are them and i am me. anyways this video is a clip of louis ck on the conan o'brien show. he talks about simpler times and our total lack of perspective on things that do and do not matter, entitlement issues about technology, etc. i for one am kind of not terrified about the economic state of our nation, i find it sort of an encouragement for cutting out the unnecessary crud of life that is sooo distracting and dividing from people and life itself.

I totally agree with him on this and think he makes such a good point. Losing my job was by far the best thing to happen to me, having no cable is a really nice way to live, and getting rid of stuff is really freeing. I actually get quality time with people, not time with people while we are distracted. But people keep busy enough to stay distracted from simple joys. I guess it's their loss...so sad.
