And...yet....somehow it didn't. Throughout the day I kept finding/seeing/hearing things that made me smile.
The little girl who is without a doubt on the Autism spectrum even though we don't talk about that here rocking OUT and excelling at making the stegosaurus model.
The 80 year old man laughing to himself as he rode his bike up the hill...IN the underground subway station.
The new video screen that they just installed in the Jamsil Station that either constantly plays the SHINee Ring Ding Dong video, OR can sense when I am coming so it starts playing the SHINee Ring Ding Dong video. No lie, it has been playing every time I have walked by it this week. And in case you didn't know, this song is my happy place. Seriously. I am obsessed with it. (Also big ups to the cell phone store on my way home where I've heard this song twice this week.)
I CHALLENGE YOU not to be happy when watching this video. It is AWESOME.
Anyway, moral of the story, is that I guess life is not about shutting out the bad, but celebrating the good. You are going to have totally crappy days, but as long as you let go of them and wake up the next morning ready to roll, that's fine. And if you need pick me up, just pop on some Ring Ding Dong and dance around your aparment for a little while. Its fantastic, fantastic, fantastic, fantastic, elastic.
