There are many things that make me feel better.
One of them is walking in the house after a long day's work, taking my bra off, and laying across the bed, and listening to the whiiiiiirrrrr of the ceiling fan.
Ya'll know you take the bra off time you walk in the house. Don't trip.
Another is listening to old music. It always takes me back to a former time in place. I can listen to most songs and tell you where I was at and what I was doing at the height of the song's popularity. I especially like music that was out during a time when I was in love, or at a really happy place in my life, or in a place where I was pushing forward through a bad time, and came out a winner.
But I think what really makes me feel better is spending time with friends, especially after being a little down. And when I say friends, I mean people who know me, my idiosyncracies, etc.
I'm a little different than any homegirl you will have. You have to deal with me being nerdy, and being a loner. I look at people all day long. I prefer to spend most of my free time to myself. You may or may not know if I'm in a bad place or not. I have a tendency to try to work things out on my own. (This seems to be changing the older I get).
I'm an extremely hard nut to crack. I have a tendency to hide my feelings, my hurts, and my pains.
I have friends who know exactly how to have a little patience with me, not be judgmental, and talk to me and lift my spirits.
I love that. I need that in my life.
That's what truly makes me feel better.
