    Always be in a good mood

    For me, it’s always been easy to stay in a good mood. I mean, I’ve been privileged to lead a great life, I’m fortunate that way. I think my attitude helps that along, so maybe it’s a self fulfilling kind of thing.

    Recently, I’ve felt there are lots of big things to do, that pull me out of that constant good humor. There are times I wish a fairy could come along and boop me always into a good mood. Or maybe skip me forward a bit. Then again, what’s a good mood without the bad? And what’s living without it all?
