How do you handle life when you are served a shit sandwich, there is nothing else on the menu and you need to eat?
Add some Franks Hot Sauce and chow down.
For weeks I had been eagerly anticipating my first vacation in 4 months. 5 days in NY with my friends and family, something I am sincerely missing here in California. All packed and ready to go I punched my confirmation number into the “carry on only” kiosk. “Unable to process ticket” the kiosk kept telling me. What the fuck is going on? I come to find out that I had somehow booked my ticket for July not June. It would cost $700 dollars to change my flight but they would waive the $200 change fee. How nice of them. On top of a $600 ticket that wasn’t going to happen. I was back on the “Marin Airporter” Bus headed to the small boat I live in which I desperately needed to escape. It felt like a nightmare, I kept thinking I would wake up. This morning I did wake up, with my shit sandwich waiting for me.
I have a couple choices at this point. Sulk or get on with it. I sulked enough in the 45 minute bus ride home last night. I actually cried. Sort of nice, it has been a while.
Things don’t always go our way. Life is hard, then you die. It’s the last thing we want to hear when it is happening but it’s the truth. It is ok to feel the pain, disappointment and anger but we can’t dwell in it. eat the sandwich, digest it and pass it. It is time to make the best of what we have when we have it.
