It will be if you redefine what "alright" means Wink

Sometimes it may be about attitude but I wager that I know enough about myself and my life to say that it isn't the case.

No, not change your attitude and everything will be A-okay. Change your attitude and it makes working for what you want much easier. If you have a negative attitude going into something, it makes it much harder to do whatever you are trying to do. You already put up a roadblock for yourself. Thinking in the positive makes dealing with your current situation much easier and allows you to better focus on where you are going. It also makes people want to be around you and believe in what you are doing--sometimes, they will even help you on your way to achieving your dreams.

As an example I can spend my life yearning for... lots of money say... and being unsuccessful at getting it. I can live a long time like that. Or I can not care too much about money. I live the same life of not too much, but because I don't care about it, I'm happier. ETA: This is just me musing. I haven't the foggiest idea if it works or not Tongue

Sure it does. It's what our dear Lord and Savior and merchant of death and eternal torment and terror meant when he said it is easier for a an elephant to fit through a mousehole than a rich fatcat bastard to appreciate existence. You make your own heaven. You make your own hell. And nobody bleeds for the dancer. Bleed for the dancer.

I still don't buy it - no ammount of positive thinking will heal my eyes, nor my mother heart. No change of attitude will make Poland better place to live, without increasingly authoritarian government, foolish nationalists or oppresive priests and believers.

As for people I don't really want them around as I'm content with soltitude.

Life is so different. To blame circumstance is IMO weak. Not that you do. I could blame running away as a kid, mum dying of MS, me getting cancer. I don't.

The world is a big place with plenty of room for choice. I have friends working all over the planet. It sucks where you are? Make a choice.

It'll either work out or not. What does one have to lose?

RE: Would you choose life?
My husband was a pessimist. If he had had his way, things would have never changed. I, on the other hand, go for everything I want to do.

I tell him I am starting a website. He says: What for, you can't make money online.
I do it anyway and make more money in a few years than he made all his life.

I tell him I want to tear the old ramshackle house down and build a new one. That one really freaked him out. I did it anyway and we both loved living in the new house. (I still do).

I was just barely starting to recover from undiagnosed Lyme disease and said I wanted two Great Danes. Oh horror, he says, you can't handle two huge animals like that. I do it anyway and they helped me to walk again - one to my left, one to my right, no way I could fall.

Those are the bigger things, but small things like that happened all the time.

So I say, Yes!!!, attitude can totally transform your life.
