Are you a Tigger or an Eyore?

I love Winnie the Pooh so anytime I can relate life to that I do. This afternoon I watched a show that had a professor from Carnegie Mellon and his last lecture to his students. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and after treatments he is at the point where there is nothing more that can be done. His courage,faith,and love for life were obvious. One of the things he said was : You need to decide....are you going to be a Tigger with a love for life or an Eeyore..where you focus on the negative. If you want to listen to his last lecture you can google his name, Randy Pausch, and find his lecture on several sites including you tube...make sure you have your tissues ready.
