Bad Day

There is a poster I've seen somewhere that says, "When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on."

That's crap.

 I think when you've come to the end of your rope you should acknowledge it.  Say, "I'm done." Then you should let go and hope to fall into a vat of chocolate.  Indulge and wallow a bit. Then climb out.  Grab your fuzzy pajamas and a wine (alternatively you could fall into a vat of wine and then grab chocolate). Then I think you should be able to say "I had a crappy day.  I'm not doing anymore today.  I'm not hanging on to be brave or to save face.  I am just done.  Tomorrow I will attempt to climb the rope again.  But I'm not just hangin' in there anymore."

And I think you should not feel guilty about that attitude or the indulgences.

That's what I think.

I'm done.

  1. You're right, that's crap.
    And I will freely admit at night, now, "Stick a fork in me; I'm done"! No more WonderWoman mentality for me!
