As the time clock of my life slowly ticks away, I've found myself to be re-evaluating the things in life that are the most important to me. Happiness is a big one. No longer do I dream of making huge bunches of cash, though it would be nice and I no longer dream of being someone famous. After all, I'm famous enough to me and that's all that is important.
Happiness comes in many different forms and to everyone it means something different. The past week of my life has further reinforced the fact that there are many people who seem to be content to wallow away their lives in a perpetual funk! When they enter a room it's like the black plague has infested the area. If you aren't careful, you'll be slimed with their funk and brought into their world of unhappiness. Try to remain happy and you'll watch them sink even deeper into their funk world to the point of anger.
I've heard it said that "It's all about me". Well it should be, shouldn't it? Should we all not live our lives with us being the number one important factor in it? Try to make everyone else happy and you'll find you're the number one unhappy person on the block. Some people just don't want to be happy and are content to move from one funk moment to another. I've actually seen some people get angry at me because I was happy. I always say it's a good thing I've got a warped sense of humor or I might just get angry myself at these times. Fortunately, there are some cases when this big mouth is able to hold her tongue.
Whatever the future moments of my life bring me, I just want to be happy and surrounded by people who are at least trying to do the same. I don't have to question whether I'm loved or not, because I know I am. I just wish there was some magic potion I could spray in the air and all these sour people would once again achieve some type of happiness. Think of how much better they would feel, the people in their lives would feel and how better this big place we call our world would be. Unfortunately, it falls back to that old saying "be thankful for what you have because it could be worse". My life could be a hell of a lot worse than it is, but still my main goal is to remain a happy person. Humor and happiness is my valium for dealing with life in general.
Thank the gods in charge that at this point I still haven't lost the ability to laugh at myself or the dreaded happenings in my life. I wish this were true for many but it's not.
At this point I plan on continuing on my route of self indulged happiness and will also probably continue to irritate a few. I figure if you don't like my attitude at work......go through another line and if you don't like my attitude in my everyday life.....don't come around me. I put lead weights on my fishing line to keep it in the water. I don't need anyone trying to put them on my ankles and pulling me down to drown in their shit infested waters. After all, this southern girl wears lipstick and floaties and the devil himself won't smear my smile with shit water.........and how was your day?
