How was your day?
I just want to ask because I believe that whether your day has been hella good or absolutely craptastic (or even if you've had a run of such days), it's always nice to be asked how it's going. The fact that someone cared enough to ask can go a long, long way toward putting the good, bad, and meh of your day into perspective.
And conversely, not being asked - not even by someone you'd think would care enough to ask - can severely diminish whatever joy you might manage to salvage from a given day, whether it's good or bad or simply average.
So...how was your day?
(Not a rhetorical question, either. If you want to answer in the comments, or on Facebook, or via DM or email, please do. I'm happy to know.)
Anyway, onto tonight's blog topic.
I saw a post on Facebook that said this.
Make a list of things that make you happy to do.
Make a list of things you do every day.
Compare the two.
Adjust as needed.
And I immediately got the intent. You're supposed to see that you should be doing more of the things that bring you joy - like dancing in the rain or having a marathon dildo session while binge-watching "Scandal" - and less of the daily grind items that don't, like dealing with moron co-workers at the expense of slo-mo dancing through a field of unicorns.
But I'm not normal, so that's not where I went with the idea.
All I could think of was things like "I'll come to work when I damn well feel like it, bitches." "So long, daily showers." "Hot dogs = vegetables on the food pyramid, yo."
None of which violates the spirit of the meme. FOR REAL.
But actually, I guess I'm supposed to be thinking that my almost-ex will treat me fairly, that something called God will get me over the rough patches in my life, that a positive attitude will somehow grant me fucking peace.
