How Not to Go to Hell...
As I finalize the illustrations for my upcoming book "Peace, Love and F*cking Happiness", I've started to think about becoming a better person. Like, be a beacon for humanity, do good, achieve the heights of success, yada yada yada...
But, seriously, who am I kidding?!
I've always been an over-achiever, and I love that woo woo self-help shit.
But sometimes maybe it's better to take things down to their simplest (and easier to actually do) level.
In this case, instead of trying to be a better person, maybe I can just be a less-bad person.
I came to this conclusion because the sassy affirmations in "Peace, Love and F*cking Happiness" have taught me a few things:
1. That's I really am a hopelessly snarky bitch
2. That it's okay to re-frame my goals sometimes. Because when I fall from grace I want to fall, well, more gracefully.
3. That being 'positive' can look a lot of different ways. It could look like sitting in a cave and meditating. Or it might look like laughing my ass off at a great coloring page, and thereby not stabbing someone with my colored pencils today.
Voila: Peace on Earth.
So maybe my goals should be more about not being a loser and getting through the day with myself and those around be still intact. That's part of what life, and creating this book, has taught me at least.
Which brings me to my goal right now. Maybe I can't be a Mother Teresa, dogooder all the time, but I can focus on the basics. Instead of being good, maybe I can be less bad.
So, for today, I will try not to be a dick.
Afterall, I am a ray of f*cking sunshine.

Girl, your blog posts get better and better each f*cking time. You make my day with your snarkiness! I really hope I make the team... I kind of applied 9 minutes after the email was sent (cause apparently I live in my inbox) Keep your head chicka, you're already a good person. If we didn't have a little sass we would be serial killers. Am I right? Or am I right?

As always reading your blog has brightened my day. I love your snarky attitude and comments. I agree we can't always be a dogooder as if we did this world would be a boring place as everyone would be the same. But I do agree maybe we should all work at being a little less bad even on bad days. Keep up the good work and keep those snarky comments coming.

Yeah, I think so Stacy. But good deeds seem to end for me right around Happy Hour!
