I'm currently going through a phase of depression after something that went wrong in my life.
And I find it hard to feel emotion these days....
But for some reason, the above has made me shed a tear. And smile big time!
And, I will certainly cherish some of this advice and stop worrying so much lol

Its really nice to see this on here after so much doom and gloom its difficult to be upbeat after reading about the Earthquake, Obama not American, 2012, Aliens really are out to kill us and the one world government thats out to confine all of us.
But i'll tell you something.
I've been experimenting with positive thought and the law of attraction.
I've been in my same job for 4yrs and never done anything to get out of it.
I've dabbled in the weed to try and pick me up, got a mortgage that is expensive i've tried to be positive but life has kept on getting me down.
I've watched a Film called the secret and realised that if i am positive and make choices it may give me something back.
Every morning i watch the begining intro to Cannonball run 2 because its something that makes me feel good, I love fast cars, i love the tune (listen to the lyrics) and its well directed intro.
I tell my wife i love her and make sure we share a joke.
I tell myself that although i've gone nowhere in 4yrs i will very soon, i am intelligent and i can achieve anything.
I come to work thinking that something good will happen today.
I looked up at the pin board behind my monitor and see my wife and I cutting the cake on our wedding day, also on the board is the car that "I will have next" (Lotus exige).
I have been doing this for a while now and have had a meeting with my boss because i have been frustrated with no oppotunitiy for me for four yrs. All of a sudden I realise that she is basing her working day on positive thought also, I brought this up and found out that she runs her life by positive thought also and has been for many years.
We were talking for a long time on this common interest and she said to me "Have you thought about project management".
To cut a long story short I am now on my way to becoming a project manager of course training courses have to be done along with on site training. But i'll get there(And in the style with a Lotus Exige).
What is the point in being negative it does no good.
If a man can go to the moon then I can better myself in what ever way i want to.
I'm now planning my next move after this.
After 2 yrs of hard work in corporate society my wife and I are going to open our own shop so we can have a family.
P.S. My wife introduced me to the film and book, she's tried it also and has landed herself with a new job with real prospects.
