A Toast to Joy Muggers…

The last couple of years have been an interesting time for me… I decided to become self-employed. And I had a great many number of reasons for doing that… I love challenges and blah blah blah 😀 but the main reason is I guess,  that I really don’t take too kindly to being told what to do…

So… I must admit, it came as a bit of a surprise to find myself constantly under floods of unsolicited advice and opinions from all manner of folks… From complete strangers to people who informed me that they were my good friends and only had my welfare at heart…

Meh… what’ev…

And I’m not even going to go into the rubbish I’ve heard or had tossed at me via text or emails…oh… and even phone calls…

So… Instead, I  offer a toast to joy muggers…

So… here’s to the naysayers and mood hoovers…

Raise your glass

Raise it high!

But before you drink…

Just pause…

Look into that glass…

Do you see your eye?

Look into it…

Deep…

Deeper…

Now scry into your soul…

Do you like what you see?

Now stay there until you do…

As for me…

Hey! I’m busy…

Doing all those things you told me not to!

😀

  1. Hey! Thanks Joanne 🙂 I didn’t realise I’d written a verse until you pointed it out… It’s something that had been simmering around in the back of my head for a while that I let out straight to page so I could get some peace and quiet!
