I heard from a little birdie today that a student said they just didn’t like me. (gasp!) Their reason: she’s just too happy.
((INSERT BIG OLE BELLY-ROLLIN LAUGH, Holding my side, Slapping my knee kind of laugh RIGHT HERE))
This is not a mischievous or “bwahahaha” kind of laugh. This is one from absolute JOY! I’m even MORE happy that someone thinks I’m TOO HAPPY! It actually gives me GREAT JOY!
How about that!? I bet they would have never guessed that. Well, maybe they would since I’m just TOO happy. Haha!
After I got through laughing, I started thinking.
Someone dislikes me for my attitude…really?
I wonder if they like sad people or those who spew hate? I wonder if they just don’t like my enthusiasm, because I know that annoys a lot of people. I’m just curious. It has nothing to do with me worrying at all about whether they like me or not. GOD likes me, I like me most of the time so, I’m good. What concerns me is that what if they don’t like happy, because they themselves can’t see happy. What if they can’t find happy? What if they don’t feel happy, because they don’t have Jesus? What if!?!
And then I thought about this… Do they think I’m happy every second of every day? I get sad, I get down on myself, things happen in my life that aren’t perfect. I have my storms like everyone else, but I choose to ride the waves with a positive attitude. AND I always choose not to ooze my sadness or concern on other people. Of course I have people I talk to about things like that, I don’t just bottle up my sad feelings… but I don’t hurt other people because I’m hurt.
Ok, enough thinking. Let’s get back to the main point…
I’m just TOO happy.
Hold on, this is better:
