However, I am going to try to look at it as the first day of the rest of my life.
That’s right, Modern Philosophers, I’m willing to give positivity a try. Sure, it is going to be a challenge, especially on a Monday, but I like challenges.
For one thing, I’m out on the front porch as I write this. Figured I might as well get outside and enjoy the beautiful Summer weather. Who cares if I’m in my Sleeping Toga, right? I’m comfy and there’s nothing wrong with showing off a little leg.
I haven’t really worked out the rest of my Positivity Plus Plan yet, but apparently, alliteration is involved, and I like the way that rolls off the tongue. I will keep you posted as the week progresses.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Independence Day weekend. My blog rebounded nicely with some very good numbers over the last two days. I guess I should write about the Fourth of July more often as that seems to be a very popular subject.
As I mentioned in yesterday’s advice column, and old producer friend shared my Obama Sings Happy Birthday, USA post on Facebook over the weekend. I vowed that I would write to her to see if she was still interested in producing my Film Noir screenplay.
I woke up this morning to find an email from her stating she was definitely still interested and looking to raise the funds for the project. That was a nice surprise that fits perfectly into my Positivity Plus Plan.
As I’ve written many times on this blog, being a screenwriter is a lot like buying a lottery ticket. You forget you have the ticket until one day, you get a call telling you that you picked the winning numbers.
I’d forgotten about this screenplay and the potential deal because it had been so long since I’d heard from the producer.
I’m not getting my hopes up because Hollywood has burned me so many times, but it is nice to have one more iron in the fire.
It’s a positive way to start my Monday for sure.
I watched the Women’s World Cup Final last night, despite my dislike of soccer. It’s a little hard not to get into the spirit of things, though, when Team USA is playing for the title on Independence Day weekend. Plus, the players are just so damn positive, which is something I need to learn to be for my new plan.
To my delight, Team USA scored four goals in the first sixteen minutes! I’m so anti-soccer because the matches always seem to end in scoreless draws, but I’m totally down with four goals in sixteen minutes!
Congrats to Team USA for winning the World Cup. What a great way to cap off a patriotic weekend, and a testament to the power of positive thinking!
It’s a beautiful Summer day, Modern Philosophers. Have some coffee and then go out there to take on the world. Maybe you’ll score four goal in the first sixteen minutes, too.
Anything is possible. Even on a Monday…
