Guest Post from @MIH_Hitman

The following is a "guest post" from @MIH_Hitman.  It has to be one of THE BEST emails I have ever received.  I can't believe someone so young has such a great outlook on life.

From 12.22.10

You're quite welcome.  It's the only thing that has kept me going.  I literally wake up everyday and say to myself, "today will be a good day" and then give myself a high five and I'm ready to go.  Granted, it looks like a retarded clap, but it's the principle behind it.  I decide that no matter what, I'm going to have a good day.  And very rarely do I let things get to me and ruin anything that could be positive.  When you have nothing, everything is a small victory.  I think Michael Jackson said it best in 'Man In The Mirror' with the chorus, which says:

I'm Starting With The Man In The Mirror
I'm Asking Him To Change His Ways
And No Message Could Have Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change

Everything from your mood, outlook on life, how you perceive others, to whether or not the little inconveniences of daily life send you flying off the handle...they all start with a conscious choice that you make.  People don't seem to understand that.  Everything in their life doesn't have to stress them out or send them into a fit of rage.  They choose to act that way.  It's kind of sad.  I used to be that way, now I decide that life is way more than being pissed off at every little thing and getting worked up because there is always one pizza roll that is still cold no matter how long you microwave them.  I've learned a lot the last 2 years, and the main thing I've come away with is that, no matter what, I decide if I have a good day or not and it starts when I wake up and decide that I'm not letting life defeat me.
