Day 51: Nastyjazz

It never fails to amaze me that there are still so many people in the world that like to ruin other people’s good times. It’s wild. Whether its in the form of religious persecution or just ugly internet comments, people are determined to have an unnecessary amount of control over others.

It really comes out on days like today. Bitter people can be particularly nasty.

Nastiness like that turns into cancer and heart disease if you don’t let it go. It will literally kill you. Why would I waste my precious energy on hate and negativity? It doesn’t make sense.

There is not enough time in the day for that in my world. I’ve learned to focus on my own happiness and that’s enough of a struggle.

I love seeing other people happy and prospering. It makes me feel great to congratulate someone else on their successes. This wasn’t always the case, but you know what?

I had things I needed to work on within myself. I had to let of some bitterness and anger to make room for love and joy. A weight has been removed from my spirit and it feels beautiful. Amazing. Life changing. Like sunshine on the seaside.

Take some time today to love someone. Even if that someone is just yourself.

You deserve.
