CHEERFUL DECEMBER BLUES

 The doctor congratulated me on such a fantastic sprain, and that if there was a contest, I could have won it.  #Awesome

"WE WALK THROUGH LIFE MOSTLY JUST TRYING TO AVOID FALLING."

Sometimes, I feel I am the queen of mishaps, mistakes, and misgivings. 
I'm clumsy at life, at living it -  I've come to accept that, and some days are just more clumsy than others (I've also come to accept that there are no non-clumsy days for me, go figure). This months stumble began Nov. 30 -  I fell down the stairs outside my apartment and manged to produce an epic sprain that required crutches and a moon boot - but thank god it wasn't broken! 

This was a wrench in my main plan to partake in as much Christmas Insanity this year- I wanted to do it all - light watching, snow village visiting, santa-portraiting, but getting around was a hassle, so I didn't do much of that.

None the less - I was determined to enjoy myself no matter what, and so, we saw Tommy Wiseau's  The Room, we saw " The Last Jedi" screened at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood,  We saw a ton of movies actually ( Ladybird, The Shape of Water, Jumanji, The Greatest Showman, Coco- for the second time!) we did get some light watching in (drive by style) and I spent time with family eating Ethiopian Food, visiting Disneyland,  going bowling, playing Space Invaders on a 10 foot tall screen, we packed in so much in such a short time. Christmas is next week, and I can't wait for that, only because I know I have been extremely blessed, even though there are times that life makes me forget that.

 Dec. 19 | Watching "The Room"  at The Frida Cinema in Santa Ana was nothing short of entertaining, not just because the movie itself is blissfully bad, but the audience participation makes the whole experience as vibrant as a live stage event.

The moral of the story and the reason for this post is this: No matter bleak things are or how clumsy life can get, there's always ways to find a little light to brighten the darkness - IF YOU LOOK FOR IT. I am a firm believer that its fine to acknowledge pain and complain about situations that suck and not pretend that you're happy, I mean, go ahead,  #liveyourtruth, but you are also in complete control of what you let dictate your mood and attitude. Let a little cheer in with those blues, wont you? It can relieve the pressure, trust me.

Till next time!
