Positively Speaking….


I like people who make me laugh.
…..who make me think.
…..who make me feel like they truly appreciate me in their lives.

I have been very lucky to have a few people in my life who get that about me.
Who have make me laugh.
Who have made me think.
And who have told me they appreciate me in their lives.

I only hope they realize how much I appreciate them too.

Because, as I have been recently reminded,
It is way too fucking easy to let the negativity of others bog me down.
Make me annoyed.
Make me roll my eyes or shake my head.

Yet, through that bullshit, there shines these people,
People who make me smile and laugh and remember.
Remember the fun times we’ve had.
Remember the moments we have shared.
Remember the true meaning of friendship….
…..And love…..
……….And compassion between people
whether those people are friends, family, lovers, whatever.

Because, in the end,
Those are the people who make it possible to get out bed in the morning.
Make it possible for you to look past the bullshit of the day….
…..And negative people…..
And the stuff that usually makes you want to hide from the world.
Instead, knowing they are in your life , you get up….
…..get dressed…..
…..and face the day.
Because you get to interact with those great people in your life.

THOSE are the people who don’t get enough appreciation.
And those are the people I hope have the happiness
…..and love
…..and success in their lives
That they so deeply deserve.
Because they are worth so much in my eyes.
