I’ve been in hibernation for a few months now. Once the sun comes out and the temperature goes up, I hide (i.e. Heat = bad). Just no.
Let something beautiful and positive inspire you this week. I encourage you, no, I implore you to turn off your TVs and phones for a moment, go out and just enjoy whatever it is that makes you happy. Hell, I don’t even care if it’s this Pokemon, twizzler-zar, whatever it is, thing!
When I think of what the Fourth of July means to me, I think of fire…like, literal fire…as in, “Hey Dad, why did you set the yard on fire?” Or, “Hey Dad, are you sure you should be doing that?” Or, “Hey Dad, are you aware that YOU are on fire?” Or, “Hey Dad, the grill just went up in flames. How done did you want that steak?”
Birthdays. I never used to want to celebrate them or even talk about them, but the older I get, the more I finally see the value in reflecting and celebrating. Life is worth celebrating! Just don’t corner me in a restaurant and sing to me on this one day of the year, that’s all I ask.
