When Life Gives You Lemons

As cool as 2010 was, there still were crappy things happening.  No one could escape the suckiness that lurked throughout the year, and it seems as though it has filtered it way into 2011.  I was hoping that things would look up, that this would be my year for way better things.  2009 I moved into the most beautiful city.  2010, I met the love of my life.  2011, well…would just be SO. MUCH. BETTER.  Turns out, not so much.

First, a distant friend falls ill. Then, I dislocate my should. A friend of mine finds out that she’s losing her job.  Another friend’s relationship ends.  A jerk-face butthole breaks into my car.  The distant friend passes away.  I couldn’t travel 6 hours to visit my friend because finances aren’t in my favor today.  I am really hoping that the Universe changes its mind and things start going my way.

There are things in life you can and cannot control. Of those that I cannot, I say, EFF YOU things I can’t control! Of those that I can, I really need to start acting on not being afraid to take the reigns on them, and really make the most of them.

So Cheers to you, 2011…This will only make me stronger!
