2 out of 3

"In New York, you're always looking for a job, a boyfriend or an apartment.
Let's say you have two out of three and they're fabulous.
Why do we let the thing we don't have
affect how we feel about all the things we do have?
Why does one minus a plus one feel like it adds up to zero?"
--Carrie Bradshaw, "Plus One is the Loneliest Number"

Definitely my favorite quote of the entirety of the Sex and the City series. Essentially what this is saying is don't count your blessings, just enjoy them. Enjoy what you have and stop focusing on what you don't. If you want more out of life, work hard for it but don't belittle what you have now (sounds familiar? I wrote a post similar to what I'm saying above).
You had to work at everything in life. Since before birth, you were comprised of a little sperm who worked his way up to an egg and it created the little miracle of life, a life that then fought to stay alive for years and years, from womb to birth and beyond. You've came this far, don't give up now.
Life is full of wonderful things but perspective is everything. If we always focus on the negative we can't expect positivity.

Appreciate what you have. Don't focus so much on what you don't. Besides, 2 out of 3 are pretty good odds if you ask me...

Side Note
By the way, if you haven't already, watch at least this episode of Sex and the City (the "Cover Girl" episode is good as well). Trust me, you won't be sorry; especially if you're a New Yorker (but not exclusive to). There's a lot of life lessons strewn in their ahem sexual encounters (I mean the title does give a straight forward warning) and other happenings. You'll get a good laugh, learn from others' mistakes (among other things) and/or relate to at least one of the four girls.
