Hey all. I know I have been absent for some time, even after saying I was going to be more on top of things! Well, there are excuses I could give (my car was stolen, on my birthday of all days, but it ended up being fine because the car I bought to replace it is 10000x better; other personal things; I stopped freelancing for the time being because of the stress of everything going on), but suffice it to say that for a month or two, I didn’t feel quite myself and didn’t want to be fake-happy on the internet. Just isn’t genuine.
Now, I’m doing better. Seems like a haze has been lifted. There are plenty of good things going on, so I am focusing on that! Also, I’d like to thank my friends and family who have been super cool about me being a lame pile of garbage for the last couple months.
I was listening to a podcast this morning and in it, the host (comedian Pete Holmes) and his guest (Richard Rohr, Franciscan friar and religion scholar) were talking about happiness and how some people seem to have a mantra of “I’ll be happy when…” Much like I spoke of in a post earlier this year. Pete said, you’re just postponing your happiness. You’re wasting time you could just be happy.
So, no more wasting time!
(Also, this cute dog is named Clover and she is my BFF Katie’s dog. She is a delight of a little pupper who demands kisses and pets. DEMANDS THEM.)
