"I had a long sleep in this morning and was as fresh as a daisy when I eventually got up. I have always considered myself a pretty tolerant person and someone usually needs to be blatantly offensive to offend me. Having expressed much uncontrollable anger in my youth, I have no intention of wasting my energy today upon someone so undeserving.
So while most moods don't upset my apple cart or disturb my sensibilities unduly, I must confess to losing my patience with people who seem determined to have a bad day as soon as they draw back their curtains on a morning.
One of the advantages of having an illness that will shorten one's life is knowing that life is too short to stay a sour puss for a moment longer than is necessary. If you approach your milk expecting a sour taste, then don't be too surprised when you get one. Stay sour and you will never enjoy the cream of life. There is nothing that is either 'good' or 'bad' in this world that thinking it so will not make it so. I've a strong feeling inside me that today will be a good day, so enjoy it while ye may."
