It’s not easy taking my problems one at a time when they refuse to get in line.

That some good can be derived from every event is a better proposition than that everything happens for the best, which it assuredly does not.

James K. Feibleman

Allow yourself a moment of grief when life’s misfortunes visit you.  However, do not spend your days building a monument in honor of them.




  1. I don’t know, if I allowed myself a moment of grief for every time life misfortunes me….I think I’d be spending the whole time building monuments.
    So many things….so little time to grieve.

    So I’ll just ignore it, celebrate it…yes celebrate it. I may have had a misfortune…but I’m still here to bitch about it! So that’s ok.

    (you know I stepped on a tack once…could barely walk for a week…glad I didn’t sit on it!)
