Sprucing Up The Place or Happy Crying in My Beer

No I am not drinking a beer at 10 o’clock on a Sunday morning.  No hair of the dog for me.  Those days were brief and have passed.

If you knew the context of this original entry, you may cry foul and say how inappropriate Jilly … considering the subject of a post never published which is coming up on an annual anniversary of life gone too soon.  Has it really been two years already?  No surely not.  But yes, two years in June.

And that’s life y’all.  More often than not life can be inappropriate.  Or in your face.  Or unkind and unfair.  Not saying something does not make it not true.  Not saying can be a form of denial and self-preservation.  With May being Mental Health awareness month, let’s get everything out in the open.  Are you picking up what I’m laying down?

Without further ado, this is the excerpt from an obituary:

Here is a South Park quote a friend shared today that has hit home unlike anything else thus far: “Well yeah, I’m sad, but at the same time I’m really happy that something could make me feel that sad. It’s like, it makes me feel alive, you know? It makes me feel human. And the only way I could feel this sad now is if I felt somethin’ really good before. So I have to take the bad with the good, so I guess what I’m feelin’ is like, a beautiful sadness.”

As you’re out and about today, make memories.  Love with abandon.  In honor of a life gone too soon.

As always, more to come.

  1. Ah geez, you brought tears to my eyes. :::hug::: Very good post. Also, considering I’m nuts, you’d think I’d know that May is National Mental Health Awareness month, but I didn’t. Yes, there should be much, more written and open about this (mental health awareness, not just the month).

    1. Happy tears I hope. I only learned about this last year. Sue @ myloudbipolarwhispers usually does a post a day in May. Definitely need year round awareness.
