Sunshine Express

I had an uncharacteristic rant last night on the blatant hypocrisy of some Trump supporters. Sorry. Sometimes you just gotta say it out loud. Or write it down. So you know you’re not crazy.

I made a pledge to myself in August of 2012, stop being negative. Negativity courts anxiety, turmoil and attracts even more negativity and conflict. So I stopped being cynical. At least on the Facebook and other social media. I only posted positive updates and I started really processing and writing my memories down. But I would always try to sum up with hope. Like–this is hard, but worth it. Or T-I-L! πŸ™‚

Yesterday was a little remnant from the past. I’m glad I said it, wrote it, blurged about it, but I have no aspirations to be a political blog or journalist. So, best to limit negativity, ranting and name-calling. No good comes from it. It’s just me calling out in a cavern of similar faces/voices to hear the sweet echo of “Yeah! He’s an idiot!” to soothe my troubled American mind. I’m preaching to the choir and provoking the peanut gallery.

So, instead, let’s spread a little sunshine, shall we?

Thank you, JJ Cuddles. That’s what my daughter and I call you. πŸ™‚ Hope that’s cool with you. LOL JJ Cudds tagged me, so now I will tag some light-bringers as well.
