Best Day of My Life

We all get depressed. It's a natural emotional cycle we all go through. So how does one get out of such an emotional rut? Heck if I know but here is a cool story.

I enjoy helping others, making the laugh. It's a bit of a game. Oh and make someone laugh has nothing to do with being funny. Back to the story. I was feeling depressed. Maybe it was the cold cloudy weather encroaching on the sunny beaches in my head. Maybe it was the stress of life a home or work. For a few days I'd been contemplating how and why I couldn't turn this frown upside down. It seemed like such a simple task when you're three. Does age make thinks more complex. No. I'm convinced that with age we get better a finding excuses. For a brief moment everything seemed to line up and this idea became clear. While checking out with a few Christmas presents I saw my opportunity.

The drone look on the face of the checker at the grocery store. It just screamed, when will this end! "How are you doing?" she recited. "Today's the best day of my life." She paused for a moment, and with out lifting her head she looked at me as if to say, wait you're not suppose to say that. "Yesterday has already past, and tomorrow hasn't happened yet." Throwing her head back she let out a laugh at the ceiling above. As her shoulders relaxed and the smile remained on her face I saw someone different. I got a glimpse of who she was. You can understand so much more about a people when they smile. Or maybe I'm just weird.

The past is what we can learn from, not fear. Wear it like a badge and move forward. Don't sacrifice where you are by worrying about the future. In the end it don't really matter since time is relative and you can change the past and future from the present. But I'll save that for another day.
