The Ephemeral Grin of the Cheshire Cat January 7, 2016Posted by nrhatch in Happiness, Humor, Life Balance, People.
I enjoy being around people who are vibrant, upbeat, and happy.
Who look at the positives at least as long as the negatives.
Who can engage in intelligent conversation.
And silly banter.
In the same laugh-riddled breath.
Without getting tangled up in pointless linguistic briars.
Who don’t stress and obsess about this, that, and the other thing.
Or even nothing at all.
* Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused. ~ Unknown
I tend to avoid those who choose to play the part of “perpetual victim.”
Without ever attempting to stand on their own four feet.
Or who try to manipulate me with strategic weapons (e.g., guilt, fear, carrots, or compliments).
While wearing insincere grins.
As ephemeral as that worn by the Cheshire Cat.
Before it vanished into thin air.
* Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed. ~ Alexander Pope
Aah . . . that’s better!
