Sometimes life can get you down. No let me rephrase that. Sometimes life can kick you in the gut, break your nose and then throw you into the sea bound and gagged. That is, after stealing all your money, credit cards, and erasing you from the system - like Angela in the Net.
This is when even an incurable optimist - who would keep watching a crappy movie like 'Rachael getting married' to the end just in the 'hope' that it will get better - begins to doubt if being 'good' is actually worth it.
And then... once in a blue moon, Life actually becomes your sweetheart :) These moments are rare, and yet they define our very existence and all Life's previous infidelities fade in comparison.
No I have not found the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Not just yet anyway. :)
But one of my dearest friends have finally found happiness and now I know that it is true what they say - that you can find happiness in the happiness of others. Because when I heard her news, and talked to her, I got this awesome feeling of ... well ... wellbeing. The joy in her voice was obvious and it was as if she was radiating happiness and some of it actually carried across oceans, space and continents and got inside of me... :D
She reaffirmed my sanguine belief that Good things do happen to good people...And I am so much thankful to her for that - in addition to sharing her happiness :)
