There’s a virus going around Miami. It’s making people sneeze. It’s making me sneeze.
It’s funny how the year started off so good & now, one month later, I feel like I’m drowning in an upside down hellscape.
[sneezes]. Just gotta remember what I told myself on January 1st: Yeah, everything is going good right now — but there’s bound to be some stupid shit that pops up. Life isn’t an uninterrupted string of good things. Something ALWAYS pops up.
And when something dumb does pop up, I shouldn't fold & assume it’s the end of the world (as I’m prone to do).
Instead, I should expect the dumb things to roll in & see them as inevitable challenges — rather than an omen of being born under a bad sign.
So, yeah. In that sense, 2019 is still going really good. Even with all the goofy stuff going on in my life, I’m in a waaaaaaay better place.
And the bad things? They’re not bad things. They’re challenges in the middle of the good things. Challenges are natural to the human experience.
Like this sneezing — HAACHU!!
