Had 'Don't Worry Be Happy' going round my head this morning.
The sun is shining, looks like it is going to be a warm day, hard not to be happy - unlike the last month or so when mostly it has rained. When we have had a month of terrible weather, have you found yourself saying 'we aren't going to get a summer?' If today, where you are, it is sunny - will you say 'it isn't going to last?'
I know a lot of people who have been saying both of these statements. I got into a heated discussion last week with someone where I explained that I used to say things like these but eventually chose to stop and try and look for the positive, the good. I ain't fully there yet but the more I work at it, the happier I am.
It was raining last week and I hoped it would be sunny later. It is sunny now and I am glad. I think that is all there is to it.
If that note of optimism make you queasy, here's a modified freewrite to cheer you up...
Black line, slicing through infinite grey.
Another universe disecting ours,
a scalpel carving a narrow slit.
Air rushes out.
I open my eyes again.
Sunlight imprints a false negative,
time to get up.
