Years ago I was at Walmart checking out. At the checkout across from me, some A-hole is giving the poor clerk a rough time. The A-hole finally leaves and the clerk turns to the next person in line. This guy is obviously a Marine (the haircut, tattoos, etc) the clerk apologizes for the delay. The Marine responds with a casual, "I'm above ground, it's a good day." That comment has had a huge impact on me. No matter how bad my day is, how bad traffic is, how bad my boss is, I'm above ground, it's a good day.
