This is Peanut Butter Brickle. I’ve been around a long time. Thirteen years to be exact. Some people say I’m an old soul. Yes. My persons almost named me Benjamin Button.
Being around for a few years means that you learn a few things. You learn what makes you happy and what doesn’t. You learn not to fake anything. You learn time goes by fast.
And you learn that it’s never too late to change.
When our persons are depressed, we are depressed. How easy is it for them to not be depressed sometimes? I can only imagine it’s hard. It’s hard to be a person. I see that.
Do you think that others and their moods affect you? Sure they do. Just like the air we breathe and the food we eat, everything around us affects us. So sometimes, when they feel bad, and I know I can’t solve it, I have to protect my mood. I have to be ok for Fruity. It’s ok to step away sometimes. Even from the ones we love.
We can’t help others if we don’t protect our feelings. I’m not saying to not help others. But everything we do must be in balance. Do we care for ourselves as much as we care for others? Why? Why not?
You are not a super hero. You don’t have to be. But you have to be good to you.
What makes your brown eyes blue? Take notice of how others affect your daily thoughts and your feelings. Step away for a bit if you need to. And give yourself a hug.
Today, we are on the road in search of cooler weather. Roan Mountain State Park in that Tennessee place? We are on the way!
