Ever had that feeling where you simply want to forget all of your problems in a festive sweaty celebration of life? Just waking up and deciding that today is the day You are going to be a rock star?… Look in the mirror and tell yourself, I am going to be completely carefree. I am going to dance until my knees hurt, my back is on fire and I start feeling like Savion Glover used my body as a stage for a tap solo. Even through all the pain we still relish the fun of freedom. We all need those days. So why not today. Why don’t for 24 hours we simply be the woman or man that we are made to be. No pretenses, no anger, no sadness, no worry…. Let’s simply choose to BE HAPPY. Letting go of yourself for a day is not easy for a lot of us but it can be done if we really try it. Lets first just think calm thoughts. Try meditation. Empty your mind of all things except for the positive. Dress as festive as you want. I am wearing bright colors today. I couldn’t find anything truly bright so I am putting on neon socks underneath my clothes. 🙂
Put on your best outfit of all. Your smile. Staple a smile to your face today. No matter if you have deadlines at work or simply family that make moving to a cabin far in the woods seem like bliss, just put all that aside until tomorrow. Today is not a holiday but it is MY holiday. It is MY day. I am not just the serious, sometimes balanced person most assume I am. Today I am the silly, uncoordinated and goofy woman who I really am. Let’s break out the funky clothes and the jokes on FB. Let’s see how many hints I can throw out about shoes and gifts for Christmas. 🙂 The kids are going to have gourmet ham sandwiches for dinner (meaning they can actually make them themselves). It’s YOUR day too so whatever you choose do it with a smile and or a devilish grin.
Only listen to the music you like. Turn on the radio or break out the mp 3 player with the 80’s music and the entire Duran Duran album collection. Its time to get Groovy baby. 😉 don’t even think about watching the news. Instead turn on looney tunes and let Bugs bunny and Daffy Duck be the only dramatic story you hear. Your only worry should be what happens if Wile E Coyote (Super Genius) actually catches the roadrunner and finds out that the bird is actually only a mouthful. He might be better off eating the cactus and lizards.
Your day is upon you. Your weekend is upon you. This is Friday the 13th so whether or not you want to watch scary movies all night and crack up laughing at how the killer Jason always seemed to find his victims within moments, even if they have jumped in the car and driven to the most remote areas and sealed themselves in a vault.He never got his heart rate up because he Never ran. He must have the blood pressure of a god. Anyway if you want to watch movies indoors or go out to the neighborhood bar and after a few drinks remind your friends how much you really do look like an electrified chicken when you dance, have fun tonight. You only live once after all so let’s take a break from being serious you and simply be the carefree person that you want.
