There are still a few good things left out there. While every news cast reminds us of the newest gloom and doom, the latest struggle for survival and the dire predictions for the future I'm floundering around in the real world trying to get a grip. My intellect is best spent (right now) thinking about things that make me happy.
If Aretha's hat didn't get your attention and bring a smile to your face, you are already doomed. That hat gave me so much pleasure.........I'd love to have it. I'd wear it, I'd cherish it, I'd have fun with it, I'd get attention with it. I'd remind everyone who sees it what a great world this is. If someone can design a hat like that and someone else can wear it with aplomb, this is a fabulous world. It's just plain (well, not "plain") fun. That hat is so ME. Is there something out there that is so YOU that sporting it changes your attitude? Then find out what it is and GET IT! We need "a new attitude." Thank you, Aretha.
Pink M&Ms thrill me. They aren't always available, but in February they are every where. No matter what it is, pretty much if it's not pink, I don't want it. My very favorite color......happy, sweet, romantic, fun, hot, pastel, a little ditzy......can be applied to clothes, food, cars, houses, computers, anything. But pink M&Ms are the best. (Peanut preferred, but plain acceptable). I give them away to clients and customers, I present them as clever prizes, I say thank you with them, I say I love you with them. I look at them, eat them, save them, admire them, hide them, think about them and completely and totally ENJOY them.
How neat to have a little something that gives me and others so much pleasure! It beats the tar out of watching the news. If you are feeling a little pitiful these days, I whole heartedly recommend a great hat and a handful of pink M&Ms. If you don't feel better, you are really doomed. I do, however, have great hope for you because this pick-me-up is tried and true. It works. I should write a book.
