Glitter and glam…

The sun sets on anothwer day…

Rain rain we need you now, but someone doesn’t like your feel, so splash around and make us wet, and hope that people don’t forget, we need you.

Yesterday I took some time to be a little bit positive. I focused a lot on how we need to stop locking ourselves down and instead lift ourselves up. As I did so, I suppose I sounded a little bit too goofy as a few people noted that I was overly optimistic. I laughed. (It’s what I do)

Perhaps I am overly optimistic. Perhaps I spend too much time trying to take the high road. Perhaps I look at the world and see possibilities instead of the endless pitfalls of perilous plights that others sometimes see. Perhaps there’s a better answer.

Every day is a challenge for us all. We have a choice when we get up in the morning to be overwhelmed by all the thoughts in our head or to rise above them. We have a choice to let negativity seep into us or push it out of our lives. We have a choice to be positive, negative, good, bad, indifferent, crotchety, goofy, wild, or something entirely off the wall. Every day when I get up, I decide that maybe I want to be a little glittery and positive and occasionally be a little more. It’s not that my life is any better than anyone else’s; it’s all in how I choose to interpret it.

You have that choice too. When someone asks you how you are, you can say, “fine,” and get lost in that never-ending battle of the mundane where people say what they don’t really mean. You can also say, “fantastic,” and in the process, surprise the world with your resilience, overcoming even the worst obstacles. The difference between a good day, a bad day, and a glittery day is just you.

I think I’m going to be glittery even though everything isn’t going the way I want it to, even though I’m not rich, and even though I have numerous obstacles to overcome, today is my day and every day is my day to be a little more.

So as the sun sets on another day, If I’m a little too glittery, I’m not sorry. If it seems like I’m a little bit too cheesy, make grilled cheese. If it looks like no one can be this happy, you haven’t been around me yet. If you want to change the world, it’s up to you to be positive and make things happen. You can do it if you want to and make every one of your days full of glitter, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and glitter bombs are coming…
