Thankful Tuesday

Wassup Peeps!  Today is Tuesday; thankful Tuesday is what I'm going to call it.  Today I thought sharing the lyrics to Queen Jill Scott's spoken word song Say Thank You would definitely hit the spot....It did for me.  Enjoy.

I used to be stuck
I used to be stuck
How ‘bout you?
Inside a lie
That you know ain’t near
Near the absolute truth
Feel it all in your membranes
And deep in your tissue

But you keep
You keep ignoring the signs
Listening to it happening to you again songs
And put your alarm on

Inviting new dumb shit
And more loss of peacefulness
Everybody can use a little help sometimes
C’mon you know things ain’t moving right
Ask for correction
Ask for direction
Ask for protection
Since you want to feel like you’re you
Say thank you

Cause you know your request is filled
You will see
So act accordingly
Live like you believe
And say thank you

In the air
Head down
Knees on ground
And a silent whisper
Out loud

Somebody say thank you Hey!
You hear that?
Thank you thank You!
I wish you would
Just say thank you
Thank you

It’s the only thing

Thank you

Be Happy Today! Giggle Some.

Happy Monday everybody!  I’m one of those people that used to ask “what’s so happy about it? Monday that is?”  Well I’ve changed my demeanor about Mondays.  No Monday blues or feeling sad because I have an entire work day or work week ahead of me, No ma’am.  Instead, I choose to be happy about it; I’m going to be one of those people who scientists say are happy because they choose to make happiness among their top goals in life.   Okay then…. If I have to incorporate change, then why not be humorous about it.

NOW, I’m not saying that I will still be happy by lunch time HOWEVER I’m going to give it a try to at least make it through the morning!  So I thought you could help me do that by allowing me to share just five things (cut me some slack! I gotta start off small) with you that I’m happy for this morning.    Here goes.

1. I woke up this morning with all my abilities intact- I can still curse like a sailor so watch out cause I can happily do it today.  And because of number two below, I remember ALL the curse words from the curse word dictionary.  Plus I learned some new ones.  

2. I didn’t have menopause brain fog- So if you crossed me on yesterday I still want to retaliate this morning because I didn’t forget what you did!  Stop playing with your life like that!
3. Thanks to Netflix I’m all caught up on How to get away with Murder…..WHY WES SHONDA?  Why Wes? Dammit.

4. I know why you threw shade at me!  It’s because you were scared of my light!!  It’s okay, sometimes I’m scared of it too; especially when I wake up in the mornings, and #2 from above applies to the day.  Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “PULL UP”

5. I’ve been told there are benefits to being happy like a better social life, popularity, looking and feeling younger, and so on and so on.  OKAY.  My question is, and it’s all because I’m so happy right now.  Can’t I just have a glass of Gewürztraminer and we call this a day already?  I mean seriously!

See this isn’t working as well as I’d hope.  So in closing my people, in the words of Bobby McFerrin “don’t worry be happy” Just do that.  That on the other hand might work for all of us.
