Ya know that song, "It's A Great Day To Be Alive" by Travis Tritt? Well I woke up singing that song and it just certainly applies to my day. At-least the first hour of it; it's only 6:20. =P And I don't know why it's different from yesterday or the days before; I've had a long chain of not-so-cheery days. But today... ahh today it truly is a great day to be alive! I woke up early, got out of bed, fed the kittie, had an excellent breakfast of nectarine, grapes and strawberries. And now here I sit, just singing that happy song. "There's some hard times in the neighborhood, but why can't every day be just this good?" It can be. It's just my choice but sometimes that choice is mighty hard to make.
But today I am just going to enjoy my happy day, and I am not going to let it writhe out of control and slither over that fence into Bad Day Territory. No sir, that is not going to happen, on my honor! I have a choice and I have made it, so HA.
I know what part of it is; yesterday when Mama and I went to WalMart I got three new shirts. They are those kind that are really loose and flowy around the middle. Now I know I'm not fat or anything, but I don't have no bikini body or nothing; but hey every teenage girl gets a little paranoid about herself, right? And these shirts are just so comfortable and they just boosted my self esteem up about 10 notches.
That's right, folks, I am feeling pretty darned good about myself today. I got great self-image clothes, a happy tummy, a beautiful day outside, and a good ole friend I call Jesus to walk right by me. What's not to be happy about?
So off I go to get dressed, make my bed, clean the bathroom and start on the kitchen. I hope I can get it all done in time, it's already 6:25 and we have a guy coming to look at the job at 7:00. Mama went for her walk but isn't back yet and still needs to shower. So off I go to perform my duties in a lightning fast performance.
Everybody have an excellent Monday; not good, not great, excellent. I expect nothing less and neither should you!
