Looks like the end of October is turning out to be quite the shining beacon for turducken shit storms.
You know, when life sucker punches you from all sides. Also, literally…ie: frankenstorm.
And, you find yourself feeling very….humbled. And, by “humbled”, I mean “crazy, lost, overwhelmed, livid, crazy, sad, crazy, uncharacteristically violent, short tempered…did I say CRAZY?”
1000 points to the Universe for its impeccable timing.
But, guess what? Life goes on & things work out.
…which I realize is, like, the lamest advice in the history of mankind & provides virtually no solace…but hear me out.
Shit happens & we can allow it to bring us down because it’s so much easier to just surrender….or, we can have our emo, cray time (what my roommate so lovingly refers to as my “recovery period”) & fight through it, grow from it. It’s your decision. But, I promise you, worrying’s not going to do a single thing to help you move forward.
Next time you find yourself blind-sighted by said suffocating shit storm, pummeled by one unfortunate event after another…stop asking WHY this is happening to you. It doesn’t matter. You can’t change anything you’ve done in the past, so don’t waste another bit of energy wondering, worrying.
Ask yourself WHAT can you learn from this? Because if you go through this experience without allowing yourself to learn anything from it, guess what, you won’t change. If you don’t change, you won’t grow. And if you don’t grow, you’ll always be picked last in dodgeball, and let’s be real, nobody wants to be that person.
Quiet your mind. Let go of the worry. Refocus that mental energy on bettering yourself.
Believe with all your heart that things are working themselves out exactly as they should.
You’ll get through it.
Here’s to the happiest of Mondays!
