Starting on Monday, September 6, 2010 (at 4:00 in the morning, so technically Sunday, September 5), I started taking a picture of something that made me happy every day. My Project Happiness 365 started as a proactive act on my part to ward off deep depression. It was spurred by heartbreak as an effort to pull myself out of the wreckage, but now it's fueled by gratitude and a desire to find the beauty in everyday, "mundane" life. This is my honest, vulnerable journey from Hot Mess to Winning. I hope this helps. Oh, and if you're in pain, good; that means you put your whole heart into something. And if you think it won't ever get better, I promise it will. Here's my proof.

353. Days of Winning

I ARRIVED IN ABILENE!! And Kelley gave me some presents. She gave me some Alice In Wonderland teas, a new water bottle from Disney that says, “Love the world”, a bracelet that says, “I Heart Prince Charming” (like I said, you can really NEVER have too many gay accessories) AND. A CUSTOM-MADE BRACELET….

OH MY F I WILL WEAR THIS EVERY DAY. Kelley was like, “I hope you like it.” I was like, “UM. YEAH!!!!” I have so many winning accessories that’s unbeWINlievable.

So some winning things happened to me today. First of all, I’m OBSESSED with Southern accents. OB.SESSED. So. When I arrived at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport and I was delighted; someone started speaking and their accent was so thick that I couldn’t understand what they were saying. HOOK ME UP WITH A SOUTHERN MAN-BELLE RIGHT.NOW.

Second, people stare here. That’s cool. The guy sitting next to me on the plane was literally staring at me. Turned completely and staring at me. Thas coo. I made eye contact. He just kept on looking. That’s fine. I’ll take it as a compliment. Then. The guy behind him is LEANING FORWARD in order to see my face. Keep on lookin’ mo’fuckas.

Also. The other day, I went to Culver’s with some homies. So we got an order to-go. As we were walking out. We realized that my ice cream was missing from my order. So we go back on, and the dude already realized it and he was handing my my ice cream as I walked up. He was like, “I know, I’m sorry!” And as a joke, I said, “Mothafucka!” Well. People just started staring. And the worker was like, “…This is a family establishment.” And I said, “Sorry I’m not sorry.”

🙂 Just having a little funsies.

“Open up your eyes. Look what God has done.”

Keep lovin’, mothafuckas.

craves, craves, GO AWAY COME AGAIN NO OTHER DAY. Little Jamesie want to play….
