Why not? I can sit around and think my life away pondering the meaning of life, wondering why any of this is happening, why was I born, and why are people so very uncooperative. Or I can sit in wonder, stop questioning so much, live each moment as it comes, and maybe be a bit happier.

Nothing really matters. So, I may as well be happy. The Optimistic Pessimist.
