Question:
When you're having a string of really shitastic days, and nothing you do seems to improve things, then what? What do you do? How do you pull yourself up & turn things around? I'm plumb out of ideas, good or bad, and am rather at a loss as to what to do. Thoughts?

XOXO

  1. When my days are going all wrong I just turn on the news and soon enough I'll see that someone in the world has it worse. Does the trick most times for me. Hope your days get better.

  2. Honestly I just keep my head down and try my damnest to get through them hoping that things will look up. I attempt to not let myself dwell and often find distraction in starting a new project.

  3. I eat. I don't think it really helps but for a minute I feel better. I really need a better coping skills and a good diet.
    Laughter is the best medicine when things are bad. Watch or read something that makes you laugh.

  4. This is incredibly silly- but one time i was having a terrible day and I decided to start trolling Youtube for "pug puppy" videos. I'm not generally a "cutesy animal" kind of person so this was totally out of character for me, but let me tell you- it worked! I hope your day gets better!!

  5. I have found that letting go helps. When things just don't seem to want to get better, I've gone so far as to visualize setting my heart in a sacred bowl during meditation, essentially allowing myself to gain some emotional distance.

    It won't always be shitastic, but it sucks like hell when it is. You have my sympathy and a strand of strength coming your way. :)

  6. I day dream mostly. Tell myself stories were I'm the hero, the victim, the damsel-not-so-in-distress. Stories about how my life could be if one little thing were to change. Stories were I run away with the circus or a band of gypsies. Stories were I fall onto faery. Stories about anything amd everything until I feel better. Sometimes it takes a while to work and sometimes it works immediately.

    And now someday when I get lost in the stories and don't come back you'll know I really am in a better place.

  7. A wise blogger said to me "buck the fuck up buttercup". This is what I say to myself when I want to crawl in a hole because I feel like I'm being shot with a gun. It makes me giggle and as we all know....if we don't laugh....we'll go on a shooting spree. Or something like that.

    Another wise blogger says "chin up tits out".

    We are such wise fucking women ain't we?

  8. I cast spells until the house looks like it's on fire from all the incense. Then I plonk myself down and watch movies that make me feel better.

  9. Like Dark Mother and Knickers, I tell myself to buck the fuck up, get my witchy on and watch/listen to or do things that I just know will cheer me up. Usually, I plop my ass on the couch in my supergirl pajama pants with a bottle of soda and a bucket of popcorn and watch Empire Records. Makes me laugh, cry and feel better every single time. :)

  10. Sounds like you need a good old-fashioned spoil-yourself day. Go shopping, eat out by yourself (so you can eat what YOU want), or crawl into a corner with a good book. Or you could try CuteOverload.com. That never fails to start me giggling.
