…As I attempt to achieve a realistic happiness. Instead of, you know, like an unrealistic happiness.

Journal entry for today:

Dear Journal,

I feel like I am growing up a little bit. Does it take until you are 33 for that to happen? Because I read on the Facebook one of those super inspiring poster thingys and I totally related to it. (Remember those posters they used to sell at mall kiosks in the 90s? No, not the ones where you would blur your eyes at a picture of differently colored dots and see a plane flying over the mountains, but the kind with a really beautiful picture of something like a pile of sand, and then a really deep quote about how that pile of sand means our lives and us are super deep and important? Like that.)

So the super inspiring Facebook poster thingy read (in a font that illustrated one must be thinking deeply while reading this):

Success is not final

Failure is not fatal

It’s the courage to continue

that counts

Anywho, it seems as though with each year I live I can relate more and more to this way of thinking, as I attempt to achieve a realistic happiness. Instead of, you know, like an unrealistic happiness (like what happens in the movies and stuff).

PS. Did one of those inspirational posters at the mall have a picture of a sparkly snowflake and say something like, ‘Remember, you are unique. Just like everybody else’? or was that someone making fun of one of those posters that I am remembering?

PPS. Movie quote (sorry, I couldn’t help it, all this thought about malls in the 90s): “I love the smell of commerse in the morning.” — Mallrats

PPPS. Oh my gosh, I just recollected ‘Deep Thoughts, with Jack Handy.’ Heehee.

PPPPS. This is more so the type of inspirational quote I enjoy sharing with those around me:
