Daily Pep Talk from a Best Friend

You can live happily ever after.

Pep Talk: There’s an expression, and I forget how it goes (awesome), but it’s something like, “if you ignore them, your problems will have puppies.” Like, if you aren’t vigilant about addressing uneasy feelings and troubling interactions, the depression will compound, weigh you down, and color the way you see your beautiful life. I want you to feel free from anxiety and sadness and I bet you want that too.

Ya know, the other day I heard someone say, “I’m not happy all the time. I’m not an idiot.” And I smiled my idiot smile because, as long as I can stay out of my own way, I’m pretty fucking happy all the time.

Anyway, here’s my favorite recipe:

Solve problems and move on. 
Stop thinking unhappy thoughts.
Help as much as you can.
Be cool to everybody.

That’s all I’m trying to say.

Today remind yourself: I can live happily ever after.
