Let The Sun Shine

So, I'm a pretty emotional being.

I think we've pretty well established that.

Sometimes I get all morose and funky and super aware of my mortality. You know - realizing that some day when it's all said and done this curvy body of mine is going to end up in something that looks more like a pared down Buick than a pine box.

Other days I'm all Pollyanna and sunshine and bursting with optimism. I am fully aware this overly positive outlook has a way of grating on people. Hell, I used to be one of those people back in the day.


Still, there are other days when I get into a funk because I care about something too much. Maybe it's something at work, maybe it's a person I'm attached to - either way - my brain festers on something unpleasant that makes me feel a bit down.

And I'm not so down with that, y'all.

I've decided - I am not going to let anyone steal my sunshine.

I hear by declare that I will do my best to treat people the way that I want to be treated. I will kill negativity with kindness and remain committed to brushing off bad attitudes.

I spent so many years in stuck in a cloud of frustration, anxiety and insecurity and realized life is too short to live that way.

Live and let live - just please let me live happy.
