Or at least multiple five minute chunks of therapy.
Earlier I posted a video from Ze Frank. I mentioned I was so damn happy that he decided to make videos again. You see, the last time around he was a delightful diversion and the right amount of insanity that made me feel normal and gleeful. I haven’t watched “The Show” since its final airing, so I really don’t know if anything has changed other than my state of mind, but now I see “A Show”, at least in part, a little snippets of therapy. At the very least, it’s fantastic to be reminded that there is someone else out there that thinks like me.
I just want to take a minute to share the videos that were significant for my mental health:
Seriously, I want this poster. Amazing words to jump start, with just the right amount of silly.
This is why I write what I write. Plain and simple.
This last one is the most important one of all. I think no matter who you are, it’s fantastic advice. I am a strong advocate of being silly. I think that people aren’t silly enough. And I think it’s incredibly important to be silly when you least want to be silly.
Oddly, as I write this, I am reminded that I had a really crap ass day. My usual escape of running turned into a rather crappy run. The very opposite of what I wrote about here happened. I was not once but twice mocked by random passersby for being out running. I commented on facebook that I’d become a hammer, and everything was starting to look like a nail. So now in the last few hours that I’m awake, I need to chase that happy. Watching Ze Frank was a pretty good start.
