So, if you’re feeling like you can’t be happy, it’s probably your own damn fault. A lot of times I want to blame my hard times on others, but regardless of what’s happening to, let’s say my family, it’s up to me to keep a smile on my face. Not to fool others, or maybe it is to fool others, I’m not sure yet, but who likes a debbie downer?
If your fake smile makes someone genuinely smile, I’d like to think the chances are high that your initial smile is now for real. And yes, I talk in circles, sometimes about nothing, but eventually, I say something you can relate to and voila. Connection. Koh neck shun. Night.
I say never be complete. I say stop being perfect. I say let’s evolve. Let the chips fall where they may.

I finally brought the bike out of storage, put air in the tires and took her for a spin… i couldn’t be happier with this cheesy image. It’s so true and such a valid comparison to my life as of late…
I’ve neglected so many things that I’ve been saying, “oh yeah, I’ll get to that, just not now because I’m slammed with stuff…” well, bullshit. If you’re too busy for something you think you want to do, you’ll always be too busy. We manage to find ways that will delay or completely dodge such things whether we know it or not. I totally admit that I’ve been avoiding my bike, and this quote establishes a pretty accurate metaphor… I’ve been avoiding life.
Anyway, I’m not handing out invites to my pity party… but I’ll stick to posting pics with cheesy quotes until I’m ready to write something significant. i started to journal again today so I’ll be patiently waiting for the spark that ignites my appetite for life. I need to find me, and I don’t remember the last time I wanted it this bad.
