#103 - DAILY AFFIRMATION
I like my pavilion,
I like my bed,
I like my rum and lemonade,
I like unicorns,
I like faeries,
I like glitter...
Ok, that's a little over the top for me. But when you find yourself at the bottom, perhaps over the top is what is needed to regain balance.
I've always been a cranky guy. That doesn't bother me. And, so far as I can tell, it doesn't bother my good friends. But lately, I've found myself not so much cranky as unhappy. THIS is unacceptable.
While it's always been a pet peeve that I haven't won the lottery and become fabulously rich, my life - apart from that - is pretty damned good. So, I've decided that the best way to be happy is to just act happy. Not grinning like an idiot all the time, but just enjoying my life, and - more importantly - letting my partner know that I'm enjoying it. If we can create reality in our minds out of a bunch of stimuli around us, I believe that I can become happier on a daily basis, just by forcing it on myself. Happiness, or perhaps I should say contentment, can be a learned habit.
That is my goal for the rest of the year, to learn the habit of contentment and quiet happiness. While still maintaining a facade of crankiness, of course. I mean, there's no reason to shock or upset all my friends, is there?
I promise, next week's card with have something more worldly and less personal. It's not just about me.
Oh wait, it's my vanity card. It IS all about me!!!
I like my computer,
