Do you remember in the move “Now and Then” when Christina Ricci’s character fakes her own drowning to try to prove that her friends are real? Chrissy gives her mouth-to-mouth and she spits water in Chrissy’s face and says, “Good to know who your true friends are!”

Today is the kind of day where I am feeling that sentiment. Having real people around makes everything easier – whether it’s making fun easier or really getting through tough times.

The end of the year usually makes me lethargic. And being a real-life adult now makes me realize that there is only time and room for people who matter. There is no sense in thinking about the past or what could have been.

Look at the now and live in it.

Smile even when you shouldn’t.

Dance like no one is looking.
