So many decisions. So many ways we can mess up. Or be awesome, or wish for a do-over, or step back and smile. Life is so good and so hard all at once. I appreciate, for the most part, every single day, but sometimes I want to do it with a margarita in each hand.
I understand the benefits of emodiversity, and am grateful for the capacity to feel broad and deep and abundant. I am constantly trying to remind myself to watch my feelings as they pass through rather than chasing them away with ice cream or mindless scrolling or exercise or margaritas in both hands.
I'm not even sure when I figured out that adulthood is not synonymous with certitude. Perhaps being comfortable being uncomfortable is the most effective way to be a human.
