Always have been.
This is nothing new.
One song can bring me to tears/full out laughter or up on my feet shakin' what my mama [didn't] give me -- within a matter of seconds.
Needless to say, I am quick to display my emotions.
Sometimes I get all funky and super aware of my mortality. Realizing that some day when it's all said and done this body of mine is going to end up in something that looks more like a pared down Buick than any sort of pine/cedar box.
Other days I'm all Pollyanna and sunshine and effervescently bursting with optimism. I am fully aware this overly positive outlook has a way of annoying people.
Still, there are other days when I get into a funk because I care about something too much. Way too much. Something I can't change. Maybe it's something with work, maybe it's a relationship/friendship that needs a little grease. I over-think sometimes and it can make me feel a bit down.
And I'm SO not okay with that.
I've decided, to not wait until January 1, 2011 to do this NYR [New Years Resolution]. 1/1/11 [creepy/cool]. It is way too close to my birthday. And I intend to celebrate for 2.5 weeks.
I have a list of ten but the one I am sharing today is #3:
#3: I am not going to let anyone steal my sunshine.
Yes, that's right I said "steal" .
I hearby declare that I will do my best to treat people the way that I want to be treated. I will kill negativity with kindness and remain committed to brushing off bad attitudes, bad comments, hurtful remarks.
I spent so many years in stuck in a cloud of frustration, anxiety and insecurity and realized life is too short to live that way.
Live and let live.
I intend to live mine happy.
Maybe. even. annoyingly happy.
25 days until Tucson Marathon!! YAY!
