Word of the Day

Okay, I hate to do this to you, but please allow me to take some of your time to get a bit philosophical with you. I've heard people tell me in the past, "Cher, nothing seems to bother you." Well sure things bother me, but I've learned to roll with the punches and only fight the battles that are worth fighting. Some things just aren't worth it. This isn't something that totally happened overnight. It was like a a maturing process as the result of a traumatic event--my divorce, I assume. I know I sound like I've been seeing a therapist, but I assure you these are my own analogies. As I grew and became the person that I am today, I realized that this enlightenment was the key to my happiness. It's nothing that I can explain to you. You have to figure it out on your own, but I am definitely a better person as a result of it. I've met others who have been awakened such as I, and I feel as though I'm a part of some secret society. Then there are those people who are clueless and they'll always be clueless and wonder why I am so fucking happy. Poor souls. They just don't get it.
With that said, I bring you the CherBear Word of the Day...

(no subject)

I'm feeling really somber today. I don't know why. I've just haven't been quite up to par today at all. Maybe I'm tired. Maybe I have a lot on my mind. Maybe I'm allergic to my job. I think it's a combination of all three.
