Because I need a stronger dose of Good Things than just three right now:

I am not in the position of being 40 and having to try to find a partner who would be compatible with me.
I am 40, and my parents are both still alive and well.
I have friends who insist that we join them for Christmas Eve, and I know that will be a joyful occasion.
I live in an age and place when anesthesia is available, and do not have to get dental procedures done that would leave me with something like PTSD.
Amazon Unbox offers me a nearly unlimited amount of Star Trek.
Winter Fire is coming in two months.
I get to be with my honey for a solid 11 days very soon.
For now, the bills and mortgage are taken care of (next month will take care of itself somehow).
I will probably get As in all of my classes this semester, or at worst a B in there somewhere.
I have a huge abundance of art supplies and crafting materials that I can gloat over like a dragon over treasure.
Despite my weight and my chronic illness, I am still mostly healthy according to recent blood work and such, so I know that I am able to get myself back into good shape if I apply myself.
As much as the stressors in my life sometimes make me actually, physically ill, the truth is that they are (almost all) what you’d call First World problems, and in fact things are not that bad for me.
I have a healthy, human heart that is full of compassion for all beings that do not have all of the wonderful things I have, and in fact, for all beings in general. I am grateful that I have no hate in my heart.

May all beings be happy
May all beings be healed and whole
May all have whatever they want and need
May all be protected from harm, and free from fear
May all beings enjoy inner peace and ease
May all be awakened, liberated and free
May there be peace in this world and throughout the entire universe.

Not sure if that makes _me_ feel any better, tho. I guess I still have a year. ;)

Ooh, sorry about that bit. Of course, things are looking up a bit in that department, I hear.

Oh who knows? My real problem isn't finding them so much as convincing them of the case. Or being on the same continent. Or both.

This was just lovely, and made me laugh out loud in one or two spots, and just generally feel good about the world (and the fact that you're in it.)

ONE MORE GOOD THING!!!
Someone has made a 24-hour-long YouTube video of the background noise of the Enterprise-D. You can play it and imagine that you're spending a day on the Enterprise.
