You know what the secret is to being content in life? Low expectations.

Let me give you an example: before you go to sleep, you tell yourself "tomorrow is gonna be a good day."

Next morning, you burn your toast and overcook your eggs, your car breaks down, you get a splinter, you trip on the sidewalk and scrape yourself up, somebody firebombs your favourite restaurant, your old high school bully tracks you down, your coffee has broken glass in it, you get mugged by a guy with full-blown AIDS, and your TV explodes.

What's the answer? Simple: just say "tomorrow is gonna be a day" instead. Next morning, son of a bitch! Hours, minutes, the transit of the sun. It's a day! No matter what happens, no-one can take that from you.

Notice that I said content, not happy?
