I'm too sexy for my hat

Sexy might be the wrong word for a 66-year old woman with dried up ovaries.  (Sort of like Susan Boyle gyrating her hips).   I feel alive, alert, and optimistic.  I'm saying affirmations. (I'd list them, but then I'd have to kill you).   I've decided to stop watching dark movies and TV.  I've decided to be a believer again.  I've decided to give myself a break.  I am choosing mental health.  MENTAL HEALTH.  I am choosing joy.

Spring arrived this past weekend, and I did all my out-of-house chores in my new 18-year old Miata singing along with Carly Simon, who is really hot to old people like myself.  

As much as I hate admitting it, attitude is everything.  Why is that so hard to register in January, February and, yea verily, March if you haven't taken off for sunnier climes?  And is my positive view of the universe seasonal, chemical, denial?  Oops, that might be a dark question and we're not asking those these days.

I am open to well-being and abundance.

I really am.

Isn't it amazing how some sunshine, blooming tulips and a convertible can help our attitudes? Why do we have to have winter at all?

I'd love to hear the affirmations though.

Susan Boyle made me cry, a good cry. Who needs sexy when you've got beautiful, even at 66. I was rockin' some Johnny Mathis the other day and I'm 35. Timeless music is hot at any age. Joy leads to everlasting life. Anything else equals everlasting death, not good. I'm with you on the affirmations and whatnot.

I have a 62 to 97 percent positive outlook. It’s on a sliding scale.

Good for you.

If I correctly recall a past post, Tom thinks you are sexy.

I like Carly Simon also. And I am 34.

What I'm saying is it's lovely to see people being open to well-being and abundance. I try and remind myself to do it often.

Sunshine truly makes us happy cause we've had a long, hard winter...

You look amazing in that little car!

What a glorious post. I feel like jumping on the joy train myself. Thanks for the nudge.
