On a More Positive Note

Whisper Softly, this blog is inspired by you.

I appreciate the deeply melancholic, there is a beauty in it that can only be explained by those who by their very nature experience it and are not afraid to embrace it.

But even though sadness reverberates deep, and pain pierces through finding no resistance, so must light, joy and happiness.

And today, I list the things that I am thankful for, that make me smile, that are more positive.

1. I am happy because I am loved. I shy away from love but could not imagine life without it. Mr. X, you're included here, thank you for loving me.

2. I was blessed with simplicity. I am happy that I can share a joke with a 5 year old and still find it funny, that the small things lift my spirits so much.

3. That in a society as that I live, I consider my mind free, at least to a larger extent. That my sexuality is not my enemy, that is truly a blessing.

4. I was born, that is enough to be happy about.

I'm stuck.....perhaps later.

Neurotic, I am glad to see there is a lighter note to your blogs, and I am happy that you are happy. Number 5 would be that you are appreciated even if you do not alway realise it. There are a lot of people out there that would be glad to call you friend, and I would be at the top of that list. If only Mr X was close at hand I am sure that there would be lots more that you are happy about too. always in my thoughts, your friend.

You are such a sweetheart! I'm glad you're contemplating the things that make you happy and I sure love your list - it's wonderful and so are you!!!

This may sound silly to you, but for years now, I've been keeping a running list of things that make me smile. It feels good for me to look at it when down or frustrated and it also feels good when I am adding to it. I don't usually leave links in other's blogs, but thought this relevant to your cool post and that you might enjoy the read. Hope it makes you smile even more than you already are today!!!

Whisper, I'll take a leaf from you and start putting down more positive things more often.
