Here's What "Happily After" Is

 

and where it is....

happily ever after is knowing shit is going to happen.
it always has, it most surely always will.
it's not something you can avoid in life.
sometimes, kids, shit is gonna happen.

and you're going to have to deal with it.

well, you don't HAVE to, but you'll never
get to happily ever after if you refuse to
deal with shit.

happily ever after is at the end of your arms,
right there, in your hands. it's

living your life as if it belongs to you.
it's functioning.
it's adjusting.
it's knowing what to let go of and what to hang on to.
it's treating all life, including your own, as if it has value and
meaning, because it does, even when you can't see it.
it's "live and let live."
it's stand up for what you believe in, but don't take it over
the top unless lives are in jeopardy, cause there's too
much attention paid to things that will not change the
quality of life.

of course you know all this.

of course i'm irritating you AGAIN by telling you stuff you already
know.

of course you're thinking, "what the hell does SHE know,
this screwed up bitch with her own agenda?"

you never, ever appreciate something in all of its wonder, until
it's gone.

and i been gone a long, long time.

consider me a wonderful memory.

i'm much better that way.

the reality of me is something very different. it's a sigh,
a moan, a cough, a murmur, a whisper of....


silence
