Reasons To Be Cheerful

#1 Unread post by mogster » Thu Jun 02, 2011 4:11 am

Let's have a good news thread. :)


1) Just finished another set of nights & have 4 days off. My fella also has days off at the same time! :D

2) Tis a glorious day here in Dorset & at only 10am it must be 18 degrees already. :sun:

3) The forecast is hot & dry all weekend
:thumbsup:

4) Just been e chatting with daughter ¤2 who is in Oz & having a blast. Can't believe she is already 1/2 way thru her round the world trip already!

5) Will be spending some time with daughter ¤1 over w/e. :clapping:

6) Pay is in bank so I can pretend to be solvent for a few days. :lol:

So can anyone add some positive news? :sunshine:

Hmmm, like Hondagirl and Gummiente, everyone on this forum is still alive. That's always worth being happy about.

Everyone here is literate. There are about a billion people who aren't.

Everyone here can read and write in English. A bit less than 5 billion people can't. (Not that English is better or worse than any other language. As someone whose first language isn't English, I'm just happy to have access to the majority of the content on the internet, for better or worse).

Everyone here has internet access, for that matter. Around 4 billion don't.

Come to think of it, everyone here has electricity. 1/4 of humanity doesn't.

Everyone here has - or is interested in getting - a motorcycle. Whenever I'm in a cr@ppy mood or situation, I think, "I've got a bike!" and everything immediately feels a lot better.

I probably don't have to "WORK" tonight. I'll more than likely be exercising my right to strike while on picket duty. Yes, this is good news, it means we'll be finally on our way to, maybe, resolving some serious issues in our contract...

In no particular order...

1) It's Friday!
2) The sun is shining, and is supposed to shine all weekend.
3) I'm finally getting over my bronchitis.
4) My oldest son will be home on leave... soon... (not soon enough for mom! ;))
5) It's payday, so I too can pretend to be solvent for a few days.

SIMPLY PUT: WHAT! Do you really need a reason?!

ok...

To keep your mind actively seeking new discoveries...

and, to make the day whisk along...

and for those of a more practical mind-set: to show the best version of you...

and it usually helps others to be cheerful too :-D like anti-voodoo karma :mrgreen:

and for those of a much more practical mind-set... because you just met someone fun while being cheerful :D (or at least i did so you can to)

and

because all the fun and amazing animals, nature, art, technology, goodies, snuggles, food, opportunities, people, stories, music, and activities twirling about the universe...

or

because it beats being uncheerful by about 1000:1

etc. etc.

----


or because maybe there is just one person out there who you wonder about (like a Chelsaroo in my case who i met 10 years ago and still wonder about a few times a year probably because i kept bumping into her a few times a year for 10 years with consistently irksome/unfortunate/empathetic/odd feelings) and who still hasnt seen the real you and needs yet another simple reminder of just good old fashion cheery choo choo behavior to open up her soul and maybe help her apply a little more of that happy helpful cheerful charm to an important part of her life ...
:tricycle:
just being cheerful about all those strange things in this screwy world (snicker)

(For musical references, John Lennon sung "Strange Days" and the Beatles also did "Day In The Life", and The Doors sung "People Are Strange", and Pink Floyd threw "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" into the mix) and Bobby McFerrin later sung his basic "Don't Worry Be Happy" tune... and Moxy Fruvous has a few great zingers, like "Once I Was The King of Spain" and and they covered Dr. Suess' "Green Eggs and Ham", but perhaps if I am lucky enough I'll be able to describe the fun girl I recently met with Moxy Fruvous' "My Baby Loves a Bunch of Authors"
"Zounds! Zorched by Zarches, Spaceman Spiff's crippled craft crashes on planet Plootarg!"

For Sale: Ninja 600 with parts bike, needs minor work, $30, no title... (GEE THAT DOESNT RING ANY WARNING BELLS DOES IT?)
