Escape Plan

We've all had those days when things go unbelievably wrong. Unbelievably, inconceivably, everything just goes awry.

What to do?


Stay home for three days?

Go out and have a good time with friends, regardless?

Get a pedicure?

Cut your hair?

Get an intense workout from the gym?

Work your ass off?

Read your favorite book?

Go shopping?

Talk to someone on the phone for 6 hours?

Surf the internet?

Play with your baby?

Go out with someone else?

Hit a pillow?

Throw a tantrum?

Watch a Brad Pitt movie?

Listen to U2?

Been there, done ALL that.

Doesn't change the fact that we still have to deal with the problem for it to go away.

So just do it. Deal with it. Finish it.

Chalk it up to experience.

And forget about it.

Smile, people! Lighten up! Don't take it so seriously!

Life is not about where you are, or where you're going. It's about the ride!
Bumps and potholes, air pockets and big waves, are part of it!

So just suck it up and brace yourself for that bad turbulence, the humongous traffic, the sea-sickness over troubled waters.

"This, too, shall pass."

We may not see how rough the travel ahead might be.
But we can certainly be better prepared next time: if not how to deal with the road ahead, how to pick ourselves up after a crash landing.
