Just Press Play
Do you ever have those moments where you pause just long enough to realize that in that moment you are actually ridiculously happy? I had one this morning. It felt nice.
As a teenager, I worked at Honeybaked Ham. It was glorious. All my ball playing school friends worked there, it didn't seem like a job, we got free grub, and we were serenaded every weekend by our older classmate Lashawn. I was basically slangin' ham with Stevie Wonder (the fine looking version) on the regs. You'd be on time to work too. #SexualChocolate
I even got my dad in on the fun. As a Union butcher he would often be on strike - so pops came in to join our action and help pay the family bills on one such occasion. He hung with us kids like it was nothin'. Singin', slangin' and being silly. Those were fun times.
As we age we sometimes have to trick ourselves. Our brains are big on mindfucking us over, so we have to tell ourselves different stories. Turn yourself on with some sexy tunes and dance your way into a good mood. Make a mix. Find some semblance of happiness. Before you know it you just might become a happy person again.
Don't go dying before you're dead now.
XO, MZ 💋
