I woke up today and I wasn’t happy. I had a lunch date with my favorite Virginian friend, but I wasn’t looking forward to it. SLEEP. That is what I wanted instead. Food is frivolous. Friends are frivolous. I needed to hide in my bedcovers until this terrible thing called a “break-up” was over.
That’s not how it works. I promise. Food and friends are not frivolous. They are important and imperative.
On the way to lunch I listened to a specific Sam Smith song, gorgeous in its entirety – also able to make me cry about my now faded relationship. So after lunch, when I got back in the car to spend the rest of the day and night alone, I changed the playlist. I put on Phoenix. Who can be sad while Phoenix is playing? (I dare you.)
My point: If it is dragging you down or making you unhappy, change it. Change the station, change the tune, change the relationship. You are worthy of infinite happiness, please, don’t forget that.
