A man was sitting in a doctor's office waiting room. He kept saying out loud, "I hope I'm sick. I hope I'm sick. I hope I'm sick." Finally the receptionist asked, "Why in the world would you want to be sick." He said. "I'd hate to be well and feel this bad." While happiness is not our primary goal, living by Christian principles and with a Christian attitude will result in more genuine good feeling than any other philosophy.
