In the thick of it all, I was driving down Lincoln Boulevard and saw this mural, and was like, Yep. They're right. I'm making up my mind to be happy no matter what. Of course, this is easier said than done, but it really is mind over matter.
I'm seeing what people are awful, and what people are incredible friends. Difficult times are very good at sifting out who truly is the real deal in your life. The minute I changed my attitude and chose to focus on the good - even if minute to minute - things began to improve almost immediately. Today I saw this mural in front of what I'm sure will be another fancy shop on Abbot Kinney, but for now is some most excellent and timely advice ...
Life is tricky, Baby ... Stay in your magic. Live a life you'd relive. Learn the Heart way. Trust. Love is the only superpower that can save us. You know, I can always count on the Universe to show me signs that every little thing is gonna be alright - especially if you stay in your magic. If you lead with love. If you let people in and let them know you'll be there for them too. We get by with a little help with our friends, and I give thanks eternal for those of you who are using those love superpowers for good. I love you. I appreciate you. I THANK YOU.
Thanks for the encouragement, Venice!
Happy Cinco de Mayo weekend, All!
