And why can't that person be me?

The other day, I was going on and on and on about somebody I know. I don't even know him too well, but he has a way of making everybody feel like they are old, close friends of his.

I was saying that he had the best, happiest energy I have ever witnessed and how it's too bad we can't bottle it.

I wished that we could clone him.

I complained that this world needs more people just like him.

Last night, as I battled my usual insomnia (it's become such a part of my life, I figure I really should just accept it), my thoughts returned to this ray of sunshine and I realized, "Well, why can't I be one of those people like him? Wouldn't that be doing my part?"

Maybe some people are more naturally rays of sunshine with happy energy that make everybody around them feel better.

And maybe the rest of all CAN be with just a little effort.

I'm willing to try...
