Trying to Get Like Jessica

So I overslept today. I'm behind on my writing schedule. I had to brave the cold to go to the grocery store because the fridge was on E. Yadda, yadda, yadda. As my dissertation chair says, "Girl, please. Those are gold-plated problems."

Someone on Instagram posted about being in charge of our own happiness, and so I got myself together. I said, "Self, today your joy will not be defeated by the little stuff." So I juiced, fixed breakfast for my hubs (I'm detoxing from one of those all-you-can-eat meat on a stick places - more on that later), turned on my gospel mix to let Kim and Kierra minister to me, and pushed through the morning.

I am about to write for the rest of the day, well at least until  Rick and the zombies (i.e., The Walking Dead) comes on tonight (Yaaassss!!!). I opened my computer and remembered that I watched this YouTube video yesterday.  How fitting for my day. I've decided that for the rest of the day, I'm going to try to get like Jessica.

Jessica reminded me of a few things: My whole house is great. I like everybody. I like my hair. I like my pajamas. I like my stuff. I like my whole house. I can do anything good! Out of the mouth of babes!

I missed church as I often do :(, but my main man, Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith is about to stream live from California. I'm feeling better since my detox. I just had a great dissertation idea. Yeah, I'm in control of my happiness. I can do anything good. Jessica said so. More importantly, God said so. 

Until next time....I'm off to go stand on my bathroom sink and be great like Jessica!
