I think there has been a universal energy shift lately. People who tend to be very upbeat in my world are more cautious and slower to twinkle. It isn’t so much about the economy, or world situations, it is simply weariness in attitude. I’ve been trying to remain steadfast in my optimism, but there are days the rough stuff scrapes the smile off my face, and I like to smile.
When I look for good things I find them. Almost every time something unhappy happens in my life, something good immediately follows. I get one negative bit of news…I get one great letter from friend. I break a glass…I discover another one that‘s been in the back of the cupboard. The secret is constantly looking for the good when the bad is doing hand stands and yelling, “Look at Meeeeeee!”
My husband was reading the paper and was, of course, checking the obituaries. I asked him what he thought my epitaph might say. Without a moment of hesitation he said, “She knew how to laugh.” I really liked that, and it was the best part of my day.
