You could certainly see it that way, and I have. But I guess I truly believe in attitude adjustments. I am living proof that they work--and do so to your advantage. When I hear the birds, I don't ever think about the day I won't hear them anymore. When I see an amazing light from the sky--colors and shadows and intensity--I don't think about death or winding up in hell, nor do I think about god. I just think how absolutely beautiful it is.

Living in the moment has its advantages.

Even with our depression and our ADD and OCD and all the other mental illnesses we have, I still believe we can do plenty of things to help ourselves. Changing self-pity to acceptance, perhaps (which doesn't mean you stop trying to improve your lot--ever!), can make all the difference. It has in me. I am far less moody and pessimistic than I was when I first got insomnia and panic.

So that was the key for me. You can still be a cynical fatalist (that's what many of us are) and enjoy those little moments. You just have to figure out where your G-spot is and keep your finger on the button for awhile until you like feeling that way so much you search for it everywhere.
