The other day, S23 posted about a list she made about blogs written by Happy Black Women. My first thought was, “I sure as hell wouldn’t make that list.” And it’s the truth. Most of my posts are kinda downers. I’m not happy. But I want to be. I want to smile every day, not get snarky with stupid people, not be angry with TBL. I want to wake up to that sweet baby, have a productive day at work, go home, cook a delicious meal and be happy while doing it all.
I’ve decided to embark upon a Fake It til You Make It attitude. From now on I am going to purposely be happy. I am going to smile more. I am going to write less about shit that makes me sad and focus on what makes me happy. I can be funny when I want to. I want you all to come here and walk away with a laugh or something interesting to think about. I don’t want you coming here on a daily basis and hearing about my troubles and thinking “poor Babs”.
Poor Babs, hell.
So nothing but sunshine and sparkles from here on out. Okay, maybe that’s a stretch. Baby steps.
Sunshine and sparkles are in order for the rest of the month. After all, October is my very favorite month. I love autumn. I love Halloween. I love fall television.
Hopefully by writing about what makes me happy I will attract more happiness.
