I had been working up the “courage” to go outside to soak up some sun and go for a walk. It was definitely for the better – an Optimists told me so herself.
As I walked, I kept on thinking about what makes me feel like this; why do I feel all alone when I’ve got such good friends and such awesome readers that helps me look at the positive in life?
My smile was upside down, even as I kept reminding myself of all the love I receive daily. That was until I saw him.
You could tell he was happy deep within himself. The cold weather made me shake a little; it had been raining all night and the roads were paved in puddles. He looked at one and without thinking jumped right in, splashing water everywhere.
As I walked by, he didn’t stop. He looked so happy.
I started humming “Bye, Bye Blackbird” while jumping in the puddle next to him with a HUGE smile on my face.
