THESE ARE ALL GREAT THINGS, PEOPLE.
I should be friggin’ DANCING. We should ALL be dancing.
But we’re not. Well, I’m not.
Let’s just say I’ve had better weeks. I won’t go into details because it’s just the same ole’ stuff everyone struggles with, like health insurance, or various other toils our lives get sTaCKeD with, devouring every ounce of our happy places (or our time).
I’m going to end this post quickly and succinctly with what I told Nuggie yesterday:
“I’m tabling this stuff until after my book-signing, even though I have every reason to be upset about these things, because DANGIT! THIS IS MY WEEKEND. THIS IS MY YEAR.”
Am I right?
As for you… I know that life can get in the way of our mantra to “enjoy every moment,” but whatever shit you may be dealing with, realize that your problems are not always as bad as the next person’s. There is always someone out there who would gladly trade places with you. You can take solace knowing some day in the future you and I will BOTH be through this tunnel, and peeking into the light.
Because THIS IS OUR WEEKEND. THIS IS OUR YEAR.

Love you people!
