It’s time for some lovey dovey stuff. Why? BECAUSE IT’S ALWAYS TIME FOR LOVEY DOVEY STUFF! Hey you! Yes you! Right now: if you’re reading this, if there’s someone important in your life, tell them something you appreciate about them. It’s so much easier to complain than it is to praise, but it sometimes takes courage to open yourself up to someone and say what you like about them. And don’t do it because you’re waiting for reciprocation; do it because you want to see someone happy, because one of the greatest pleasures in life is giving pleasure.
We constantly focus on how we can make life better for each other. Martina mentioned that I don’t complain when I do lots of stuff if she’s having a day that she can’t get out of bed. And why would I complain? If I can bring her a cup of coffee that she likes, and if I can see her take a sip of it and smile, that makes me happy, more happy than I’d be if I just browsed Imgur or played my DS.
So, that’s it. Let people around you know what you like about them. Tell your teacher that they’ve inspired you to write more. Tell your mom how her cooking has been such a big part of your life and how you wish you could be a kid again trying her stew for the first time. Tell your coworker you can see that they’ve been busting ass and you admire that in them. And tell your significant other that you appreciate the effort they put into your relationship. Then tell your cat to stop meowing GODDAMMIT MEEMERS WHY ARE YOU CATERWAULING AT 1:22 AT NIGHT?!?! I’m gonna go play the bongos on his tummy flab. See you next time.
