It’s All Good…Really…


Bertha…brought the popular phrase…It’s all good…up this morning…along with the commentary…that most folks don’t mean it…when they say it…they are usually attempting to gloss over something…that they aren’t happy about…

She went on to say…that…I am most folks…hmmm…that was subtle…

So…after thinking about it…I have to agree…most of the times I’ve heard it…it was spoken with a twinge of sarcasm…but…it’s not a phrase that I normally use…so…for once…I wasn’t guilty as charged…right

Wrong…

According to…Bertha…it’s the glossing…not the actual phrase…that she’s referring to…

Oh…well…that…then…em…yes…I’m guilty…string me up…but…hasn’t she been trying to get me to have a positive attitude for years…and that’s what I’m doing…right

Wrong…

Seems as though…pretending to be happy when I’m not…really isn’t the same thing…who knew

Now…she quickly clarifies that she isn’t giving me a…get out of jail card…allowing me to be grumpy and in a bad mood all the time…

No…she’s saying…I need to acknowledge what is bothering me…and then I need to do the work…that it takes to get back to a good place…bringing up the…a shuns

You know the ones she likes…appreciation…contemplation…communication…meditation…

And…I know she’s right…yesterday…I wasn’t in a bad place…but…I wasn’t really in a good place either…and…she had me write about…appreciation

I have to say…it was one of the best days I’ve had in a while…not that anything special happened…I didn’t get a large check in the mail…didn’t find true love…or get a new car…but…I was really present for the kids…I listened…they talked…we smiled…I enjoyed my work…I didn’t fret about things…I had a positive attitude…I was happy…

And…that’s what…Bertha…says it’s all about…and I have to say…I agree with her completely…and that’s…no gloss
