So, I went through a phase recently (I’m still trying to pull through). I was at once trying to get a particular cloth with a tricky design done for a client and in this dark, gloomy, cranky grouchy, sad place. And then, I decided to watch old episodes of Glee; you know, sing along, laugh a little and lighten my mood.
And then, there was this particular episode that had Sue talking in her corner. We all know how Sue can be annoying and mean. But she kinda made sense that day, a whole lot of sense to me. In that moment, I actually fell in love with that evil stepmother for like . . . five seconds.
She said: “…whether I’m accepting a honorary doctorate or performing a citizen’s arrest, people ask me ‘Sue, what’s your secret?’ Well, I will tell you my secret, Western Ohio. Sue Sylvester is not afraid to shake things up!”
You know, I’m tired of hearing people complain. I’m riddled with disease. I was in that tsunami. To them I say, “SHAKE THINGS UP A BIT!” Get out of your box, even if that box happens to be where you live. I often yell at homeless people: “Hey! How is that homelessness working out for you?! How about you give not being homeless a try!”
You know something, KD. It’s not easy to break out of your comfort zone. People will tear you down and tell you that you shouldn’t have bothered in the first place.
But you see, there is not much difference between a stadium filled with cheering fans and an angry crowd screaming abuse at you. They are all just making a lot of noise. How you take it is up to you. Convince yourself that they are all cheering for you. Do that and someday . . . they all will.
