Why is it the things I don't have are so much louder than the things I do?

It's like having a conversation with someone sitting across the table from you in a restaurant and as much as you really, really want to hear what they have to say someone at the next table is being much louder and you can't help but eavesdrop.

I was disappointed today 'cause I found out I didn't make that Ten-Minute Play festival thing, and I was tempted to think, like maybe we all are at times, "Man, disappointment sure seems to be the leitmotif of my life."

To which I replied, "What are you, fucking blind? What exactly about your life is disappointing? What is there not to love? You auditioned for two comedy troupes and you made them both. You get to make funny several nights a week, that's what you like to do, isn't it? You're on the writing staff, two of your sketches are getting produced, people are liking your shit. You get to go to school to learn about something you actually want to do. So you're lonely? MAKE MORE FRIENDS. So you're bored? WALK AROUND. Just. Quit. Whining."

Which seemed like pretty good advice, if I do say so myself.

I wonder how it is we can learn to really truly appreciate the fantastic things in our life and disregard the bad.

And how some good things can turn into fantastic things, just not in the form we were expecting, which keeps our sorry asses from appreciating them like we should. And we should.

Is the grass-is-greener tendency something that can be beaten out of you?

Coaxed? Coerced? Fucked?

Ooh, please say fucked.

And then please volunteer.
