I'm trying really hard not to drop into a funk. OK, I'm not trying as hard as I should, but I'm trying a little bit. I really want to quit my job today and I'm really sad and frustrated. I've finally put my finger on the point of my job issues. Of course it doesn't help any that I'm obsessed with the idea that "you can have happiness or power but not both."

It's amazing how our lives are parallel. Not the same, because it's not my job that's making me sad and frustrated right now, but parallel.

And I think you can have happiness and power at the same time, but you have to take control of it. You have to bite the bullet and do what makes you happy, and then you'll feel more empowered as a result.

Maybe a different way of saying it would be, "You can have power and happiness, but only if one brings you the other." You can feel happy by having power, or you can have the power to feel happy. Or you can find someone who makes sense, obviously not me.

Of course, I have very little power or happiness right now, so maybe I'm not the one to give advice on such things.
