There is always the discussion of pragmatic vs realistic outlook . If life hands you lemons make lemon aide. If you do not have sugar to go with the lemons then the lemon aide really sucks. and some people just do not like lemon aide regardless and really would rather have a Coke and are unsure why they are expected to be happy with lemon aide when all they want is the Coke everybody else is drinking. I have my lemons, and I even have the good fortune to have some sugar as well. I do not want lemon aide today. I want Coke. I do not just want Coke, I want Coke with ice and maybe even a little Bacardi today. The fact i do not have coke, Bacardi, and that if I did it would be bad for me to drink it is not really of importance at the moment in my psyche. Today will pass and tomorrow I might be very happy to have lemon aide again, but right now it is not what I want. And good attitude is not making me think the lemon aide is just as good. Not today, it is not.
