The Complexities of Life

Optimistic Unicorns

Sometimes, you just want to wallow in your own crappy mood. Really, you do. I have moments when I just want my emotional weather report to reflect thunderstorms with a 90% chance of lightning. It’s safe to say that my mood is less than stellar and I don’t see a problem with it. 

Unicorns aren’t always welcome.

Now, while I’m in the midst of my moodiness, I have these folks fluttering around with words of wisdom dipped in glitter and sunshine. 

“Smile!”

“You need to perk up.”

I refer to these folks as Optimistic Unicorns, aka walking emotional contradictions. Full of sunshine and the spirit of a well-loved mythical creature, these folks irk my damn nerves. Take all that optimism elsewhere and let my thunderstorm play out.  

I promise I’ll return to my normal self…eventually.
