How do you honestly feel at the moment?
Now, smile. Right now. Go on, don’t be shy… Give your Lemons a big cheesy grin.
Now Laugh. Yes… Out loud. So everyone around you can hear. As if what you are reading right now is fucking hilarious because I am a comedic goddess.
Now… Let’s go back to the first question. Do you feel better now than you did before?
I am a big believer in the power an honest smile or a hearty laugh can have over us. When I feel myself being pulled into a spiral, into that dark place, I start to smile like an idiot. Yep…cause I am a fucking weirdo. Pretty soon, I actually start to feel better. The smile tells the spiral to go fuck itself. And if I can make myself laugh, even better.
Don’t have anything to smile about? Sure you do! You are reading this which means a few things… A. you are alive. 2) you are well off enough to be able to afford a device that can get on the internet, so you can also afford the internet and that shit is expensive! iii: You have eyeballs that work well enough to read this. That’s pretty special.
Still not feeling the smiles? Go outside or look out a window… Don’t have a window or an outside? Here you go…
Or you could try this… This is a neat little trick I do sometimes. Try to laugh, but don’t smile. And not an evil laugh. mimic your happy laugh but don’t fucking smile… you can’t do it, can you!?
Still feel shitty? Here… If you didn’t at least feel a tiny smile at that… then I don’t know if I can help you…
NO! I can. Music!
How you feeling? Good? Shit? Fucking Amazing? Alone on this big mud ball floating through space?
I got one more thing… Well two.
Still not feeling it. Let me know in the comments, cause sometimes we all need to talk to a friend…
