You know, the world is full of cynics. Chock full! You know the cynics —- you might be one. The cynics can find nothing positive in life; instead of seeing the stars, the cynics are constantly training their eyes at the broad voids in between.
There’s a lot of darkness in the world, and sometimes we do have to eviscerate some assholes for being unthinkably evil and bringing us down. Snark and cynicism have their place, for sure, but we can’t let their bleakness take us over. When we spend too much time under those shadows, they can suffocate all the things that make us sparkly and amazing creatures.
There’s something to said for living earnestly in each moment, and finding contentment in simple things, and appreciating each other, foibles and flaws and all. We can only sparkle when we let the light reach us, after all. Nobody sparkles in the dark.
Love, Your Beluga Best Friend
