This is another questioning blog today. Why, Why, Why must people only look on the dark, ugly, nasty and gloomy side of life? They wake up mad, go through the day spewing hate and bad breath (I just imagine) and then go to bed mad.
Circumstance? Past? Baggage? Constipation? Upset stomach?
If you gave them a plate of chocolate chip cookies and told them have a happy day…they would think or even say, “I prefer brownies.” Ok, if you gave them a plate of the best BROWNIES -in-the-world with a smiley face balloon and a chilly glass of milk… they would say, “I’m trying to watch what I eat.” Really!?! IT IS BROWNIES! (the best ones in the world even)
I’m pretty sure you get my point.
Is this day so bad that you have to TRY (cuz it ain’t happening to this gal) and make others have a bad day too? Would that actually make you “happy?” OR would that somehow make your life, in some sick weird way, more meaningful?
NO. I’m telling you right now, that is a NO. Negative. Never, absolutely not, uh-uh and not at all.
Yes, I’m answering my own questions here. It’s ok. I do that sometimes.
It is most emphatically and positively truth that ATTITUDES ARE CONTAGIOUS. Is yours worth catching? When people look at me, I want them to WANT what I got! I’m not hiding my light under a bushel–NO! I’m gonna let it shine! I am not extinguishing the fire of JOY the Almighty God has given me to share. No way! I’m gonna pass it out like goody bags at a birthday party! Here’s one for you and you and you…
FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE YOURSELF from the past baggage or circumstance that is darkening your days. Have a HAPPY! Here, take a smile. Do you need a hug? Let go of whatever is making you look for the opposite of happy. Take some Milk of Magnesia! Whatever you gotta do!!! But colon cleanse that nasty attitude OUT before you end up living your life alone or worse…with another stopped up negative nilly who can only compound the unhappiness in your life. (Misery loves company? Eeeek!)
Do whatever you gotta do!!! Did I say that already? Repetition means IT’S IMPORTANT!
Don’t be one of those people that can’t find happy anywhere…
DIG DEEP! Trudge through it. Dust it off, wipe it away… until you find that treasure called HAPPINESS and …
JUST BE HAPPY.
(and eat the dadgum brownies!!!)
