It’s not easy, holding everything up. I don’t know how people do it. I don’t know how I do it, sometimes. Heck, I never asked to grow up!* That wasn’t the plan.
There are things that certainly help – friends, lovers, and a sense of humour, and I prescribe a daily dose of all three, perhaps especially the sense of humour. A smile will always help, even at the worst.
I especially appreciate people who make me smile. If that’s you, if that’s ever been you, thank you (I send you a high five, and love). You trade in my currency, the small change of chuckles, lifting my spirits every time I reach into my pocket to pay for some sweets.
One blog I have enjoyed of late is Paul Green’s Mindfump. I like the way Paul writes. He never fails to raise a smile, at the same time tackling all those issues that trouble so many of us.
I was tickled pink to be asked to contribute to Mindfump recently, and I made the picture above specially. You can find it here, and read Paul’s great writing at the same time, and explore his blog from there. Sign up! You don’t want to miss any of it.
Thanks, Paul, for running such a great gig and for being so generous to share it.
*I have so far avoided totally growing up, and fight resolutely for the right to remain childlike.
