Smile because life is worthwhile

Yesterday I felt like a fraud. I woke you with plans of writing until my fingers cramped up, but instead, I threw myself somewhat of a pity party. A couple of weeks ago I wrote an article about being happily single for the holidays, and in the moment that I wrote the article, it was true. And for the most part it is still true. The last thing I want is to be in a relationship just for the sake of being in a relationship. But I must admit, on days like yesterday, I missed my ex. Whenever I was feeling down, he was the person that I turned to, and he always shared words of encouragement to make me feel better. I referred to him as my own motivational speaker. And even though we are still “friends” we don’t talk very often, and sometimes that makes me sad. Don’t get me wrong, I know we would have eventually driven each other crazy if we’d stayed together just because we thought that was the right thing to do. So since I can’t turn to him, I’ll turn to God more and you all. Writing always makes me feel better. And yesterday a friend of mine shared a status that its nice to know that sometimes you aren’t the only person in the world facing trails, because we are all human, and none of us are perfect. As I feel my spirits begin to lift, I’ll bring this post to a close, and as one of all my all time favorite song’s, Smile by Charlie Chaplin, says I’ll keep on smiling because my life really is worth while.
