Everything’s Coming Up Roses. On Tuesday?

It’s not. It’s not coming up roses. It’s January. It’s coming up slushy, messy, dirty, icy, slidy — but it seems I am part penguin? I simply slide on through.

I am experiencing an unusually pleasant series of circumstances wherein things are about ten times better than I expect. A few weeks now.

Me: There are too many things going on.
Life: I’ve canceled the things!

Me: This will not reflect well upon me.
Life: You’re amazing!

Me: This ain’t gonna be good.
Life: This will be excellent!

Me: Erm, this feels like a crisis.
Life: Nah, Girl, you ready.

Me: This is gonna cost a bloody fortune.
Life: Nope, not even close!

Me: I smell shit nearing the fan.
Life: Only the freshest air for you!

I never know what brings these things on. At my best I’m human sunshine, but I’m not at my best all the time, cause human. Anxiety disorder is real and fear gnaws at me. Still, I try to roll with it and I aim keep my mindset positive.

I am superstitious enough to think that writing about it might jinx it, but then I’m hopeful enough to think even if that’s the case, it’s worth sharing.
Good things happen all the time.

The other shoe won’t drop. The other shoe is fiiine.

    The other shoe is fine, right where it is. No jinx. Maybe you’ve moved Tuesdays into the good category. OK, maybe not, but you can dream.

    Me too.
    But there are times when I wonder, ‘Am I at my best when I am at my worst?’ I have thrown the shit into the fan, just to see how it would end.
    Oh look, the devil is on the wrong shoulder. The angel said, “Don’t tell him. We’ll all sleep better tonight.” Wine will fix that. Right?
    Don’t know about your other readers, but Tuesdays are Joie Days for me. Inquiring minds want to know. Thanks for telling.

    Maybe I should have read your Jot before I wrote my Jot. Thank you for being positive. Don’t read mine today.

    I understand that other shoe thing all too well. When I was younger I was constantly expecting that shoe to drop. Usually in my relationships. After a while I would get tired of waiting and just throw the damn thing. That may explain my history with women. Well I am glad you week is going so well. Expect the best. You deserve it.

  10. I relate, Joey. I have to “talks” like this too. Yes anxiety is very real as is PTSD. I have been training me not to expect the other shoe to drop and to grab HAPPY when it comes. Happy, Joey! Happy! (((HUGS)))!

    I get the same way when things are good. Like, oh shit, I’m just fucking things up by thinking things are good. I hope the other shoe didn’t drop. I bragged about not falling recently and then I fell like six times in two weeks, so it jinxed me.
