Easy Fix … Write a post about any topic you wish, but make sure it ends with “And all was right in the world.”

“Happily Ever After” does not equal “All was right in the world”.  Apples and oranges.  Pizza and Hot dogs.

I want an apple and you want an orange. We have apples and you don’t get what you want, or your side of the story isn’t happily ever after because you didn’t get what you wanted.

Yes, I hear some of you gasping (and we know who you are) but what about all of the terrible things going on in the world today. Of course those things are wrong, wrong because it isn’t what we want. You wanted an orange but you didn’t get one, remember?

Yes, I see some of you pursing your lips, thin-lipping me because no one child  starving to death, no woman raped then murdered, no person ravaged with cancer is living happily ever after. Of course not. No one wants that for themselves, few want that for another.

So what are you doing about those things? Are you helping to make things all right in the world? Or are living happily ever after, because, after all, those things aren’t happening to you?

What do we want? What do you want? Make things right in the world first, then we live happily ever after.

What one thing are you going to do to get what you want? What one thing are you doing today to live happily ever after? What one little thing will you do to make sure that all is right in the world?

Send me a comment and let me know what little thing you will do. We’ll have a mini fireside chat, like yesterday’s daily post.
