I know I have said this before, and I am sure I will say it again... we cannot let the circumstances of our lives determine our outlook.
Dan said something to me about how this year was supposed to be a great and lucky year. With the health issues I am still having, it would be easy to say that it isn't looking like it will be that way. First of all, it is only January. It would be hard to judge an entire year off of three weeks. Secondly, my circumstances cannot determine whether or not this year is great. Only I can decide that. If I allow my life to be great, regardless of that which happens to me, it will be. I still have moments of self-pity, but I really do want to choose to be happy and have a great life.
