Aaron Hernandez doesn't have a whole lot going for him right now. He was found guilty of murder earlier this year, which means he's likely going to spend the rest of his life in prison. He's currently being sued by the mother of Odin Lloyd, the man he was found guilty of killing. And as if all of that wasn't bad enough, he has at least two other serious court cases pending. So yeah, 2015 hasn't exactly been the best year of Hernandez's life.

But you wouldn't know that after reading the letter that he wrote to a female pen pal recently. TMZ Sports just published it, and Hernandez sounds surprisingly positive in it. He thanks the woman for her support, says that he is "doing well," and insinuates that he gets up every morning with a smile on his face. There's even an "lol" at the end of it. You can read the entire letter here:

It's good to be a positive person. But of all people, Aaron Hernandez is a beacon of positivity right now?! It's actually really creepy when you think about it.
