Wake Up Smiling, and Have Some Lemonade

I woke up with a smile on my face this morning.  Then read a depressing article linked to Facebook.  And I’m still smiling.  It’s one of those moods that’s going to be tough to kill.  I never really understood all those articles about getting enough sleep before.  Really, though, it’s a vital, non-skippable thing if you want your health, and your smile.  And I’m not talking about the painted on, socially acceptable “I’m fine” we give to everyone when we’re not.

I’m talking about that slight up-turn at the corner of the mouth that dances in your eyes, and you just can’t help yourself, because today is too damn good, thanks very much, and hand me as many lemons as you like, because lemonade sounds great.  Awesome song, by the way.

Incidentally, I just realized, I hadn’t yet subscribed to Alex Boye when I looked that up for all of you.  If you haven’t heard it, seriously, listen to the song!  It’s awesome.

On that note, I know I’ve been using this blog to work through some stuff lately, partly because some of those things do need a voice.  I don’t know if they need mine or not, but right now, I hope this song brings your day a smile.

PS  This week’s posts are intentionally short.  I learned last weekend that I can’t let myself become obsessed by my own stress.  I’d rather wake up smiling for several decades to come than stress myself to death.  In the mean time, share your own morning smile story in the comments, and enjoy something today!
