How do you retain yourself in the face of adversity? How do you hold on to all the wonderful developments that have occurred? How do you continue to say fuck you to the world when the world just seems to be saying fuck you to you? How do you take anything negative that happens and turn it into a good thing? How do you remember that life is a lesson and wouldn’t be worth living if that wasn’t true?

The question here is …


How do you stop feeling sad or angry or resentful or hurt or pissed off or self-deprecating or disappointed? How do you learn to let go?

And trust me, all of you darlings, there isn’t actually anything terrible happening in my life right now. But the truth is that I do have something that I need to let go of and I have no idea how to do it. So it seems to me that maybe I should take this time right now to figure out how to do that, when I don’t actually feel like shit.

So, anyone got anything? Anybody have any commentary or advice or books I should read or special quotes that help them out?

  2. well, me personally? besides the daily reminder I have that despite all bad things that might happen I must be the luckiest woman to have such a great BF, any day isn’t too bad a day if I’ve
    a) run
    b) played hockey
    or c) did yoga

    the yoga has been really good. This woman I am seeing rocks. Big time. I’ve never felt so connected and at peace with myself and my body. And I have never played hockey better, and my running is getting faster too.

    Of course, I am not a great example, since I’ve always identified with the ‘it always works out in the end’ ‘how?’ ‘I don’t know, its a mystery’ from Shakespeare in Love.
