Sadness To Get Treated Like A Chump

Ladies and gentleman I am done with feeling sad. Last night I wrote a messy and complicated post about death and closure that left me feeling exhausted and sad, so I closed my laptop and went to bed. When I woke up this morning I felt like it was finally time to put the sadness I’ve been carrying around behind me. Over the last year I’ve lost loved ones and had some difficult days but I’m still here. I’m not only still here, by any measure I am doing well. Consider these things:

  • I have a lovely wife and a dog who loves me
  • I’m surrounded by a terrific family and outstanding friends
  • Health-wise I have never felt better
  • Most of the time I like my job

In case these things don’t give me enough to be happy about, consider these facts: The Best Show on WFMU is back and The Reigning Sound, my favorite band, will be playing in my town for the next two nights.  Starting right now, sadness is getting steamrolled because I don’t have time for it anymore. From this point forward I’m choosing to put the negatives behind me and focus on the positive things in my life.  This doesn’t mean every day will be perfect but it might mean I realize I have more things to be happy about than I give myself credit for.  If you’re looking for me tonight or tomorrow, I’ll be seeing these guys and feeling pretty great about life:

From this point forward, things are going to be just fine.

    Throw that sadness in the turlet, Will. You deserve happiness.

  2. Fight the good Fight. Be the Man-Boy.

    Scharpling should make a self help tape of affirmations for when F.O.T.’s have to deal with loss and chumpiness.
