tomorrow defs

It’s not always easy to stay positive. Sometimes you feel most of your hours are spent ticking off stuff on your to-do list; stuff that isn’t even for yourself. And when you finally have free time, it’s either raining or the chaos your home has turned into compells you to stay and clean. So you procrastinate the good stuff. You push it to that land of never ever called tomorrow. Excuses, excuses, excuses.

It’s not always easy to stay positive but it’s sooooo possible. You just have to set your mind to it. Focus on the glass half full. And I’m not even talking about the fact that there’s a thing called umbrella, another one called “nanny” and another one called titres services. Errr no, I’m not feeling very politically correct today, so sue me.

Life can rock if we just want it to. You’re feeling down? Check when your favorite artist’s in town and book a ticket. The winter’s got you depressed? Start looking for holiday plans (hell, I booked mine!) The rain bothering ya? Put some rainboots on and go get a BAKE carrot cake (I did). Buy chocolate and stick it in your drawer. Then compulsively eat inch by inch with a wicked sneer.

What I’m saying is, it’s all about attitude (at least for most of you reading me). I mean if you’re here reading this stupid blog post, chances are you’re not dead or kidnapped in a hole or even too busy, for that matter. Ha! Gotcha. So put some positive pants on and go make a nice little moment happen.


A smile costs less than electricity and brings more light.

Another tip? Smile. Smiiiiiiiiiile. Remember it’s better to be the one who smiled, than the one who didn’t smile back. You might be thinking what a bunch of cheap therapy! And you’d be wrong! It’s friggin free therapy! So, there you go.

And when nothing works, go check my Animals Pinterest Board. Your frozen heart will melt in a big Awe!!
