I was all set to start down a dark and pessimistic path when a thought hit me.

To be happy for all of the gifts I have been given and not unhappy because of the ones I haven’t received and are not likely to get.

This line of thinking is as the New Year fast approaching and in which I will end 2013 working on the 31st and begin 2104 on the 1st still on the same gig on the same stage.  I’ll be downtown working outside in whatever weather we get but I’ll be working which is a good enough for me.  I like the work, I like the people I work with and I’ll be working.  Funny, how sometimes I define myself by the fact that I’m working or not working as the case may be.

Does it really matter if I’m winning or losing?  I’m still in the game.
