I come bearing gifts  
Hello! *waves madly* I've not been here for a couple of weeks now; I'll get around to posting the whys and wherefores soon, but tonight I found a couple of things I want to share.

Firstly this comic,with explanation about the Voyager Golden Records. Jane Goodall is the only human being of note depicted in the set of images we chose to send to alien intelligences. I actually think that's pretty amazing.

And this short blog post really grabbed me - My Truth About Happiness. "We don't have to participate in the stories we are told."

Nice little read. We can never be reminded often enough.

It does help, I think, if we can keep things in perspective too. I often ask myself "will this be important in ten years' time?" and if the answer is no, then just let it go....

Nice to see you around! :D

I never thought happy people were stupid or simple I just felt they were wired differently. Most of the (usually) happy people I know have not led charmed lives but they see the best in people and situations and don't tend to take setbacks anywhere near as personally.

That's it, the ability to shake things off and put a positive spin on everything has to help. And yet - my sister is usually one of the most positive people I know (I call her Pollyanna) but when she crashes,it's hard for her to see past her problems. It has to be something to do with brain chemistry or "wiring" as you put it.
