State of Mind

I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me.

But it's hard to stay mad when there's so much beauty in the world.
Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once,
and it's too much.
My heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst…
And then I remember to relax
and stop trying to hold on to it so much...
And then it flows through me,
like rain...
And I can't feel anything
but gratitude
for every single moment
of my stupid little life.

from the movie "American Beauty," last frames.
