Blessing And A Curse

Bipolar is a blessing and a curse. The depression can be devastating, and as I get older, it can last way too long. But the up times, the "good" aspects of mania, I wouldn't trade for the world, because that's when I'm awesome. If I could just bottle that awesomeness and have it sitting ready on the shelf when I needed it, I would be set.

Even better is the fact that when I'm awesome, so are you. No one can accuse me of being an "awesome" hog. Go forth and spread your awesome. Just don't throw any colds or flu into the mix. That's not cool, and we're all cool. Right?

Today is the day that things get done. Most likely somewhere else and through someone else's efforts, but the important thing to remember is that they are getting done. At least, I think they are. I can't be bothered to look into it.
