Beyonce, Lipgloss, Cheese, and Other Things that make me Happy
On Facebook last week I announced that a new lipgloss could usually perk me right out of a funk for a few minutes, if not hours. But then I went to Zumba where my precious teacher memorized Beyonce's "Single Ladies" and tought it to us-- Complete with plastic rings for everyone so that we could flash our bling in the mirror like the Booty Shaker, herself.
So now I've decided that a good shake of my tailfeather to loud music surpasses lipgloss for depression breaking. And come to think of it, chocolate helps and baked Brie too. What does it for you? Ice cream? A manicure? A sweaty workout? New shoes?
I think I can say for sure that if you find yourself in a funk of sorts, perhaps you should put on your ipod, throw some cheese in the oven, gloss up your pucker and rock what you got!
Although I'd be happy to take some ideas from you.
P.S. No deep thoughts here. We all know a good cry at the therapists or some serious praying works best, but I am interested in your shallow attempts to appease yourself with fried foods and candy today. Because sometimes those little things make a day a little perkier.
