I stop being sad and start being awesome! I have, in the past, occasionally beaten myself up over things about my personality or about my actions as a young adult. I used to compare myself to others and where they were at in life or where they were heading. Then, I participated in the interview with Makaya Heart on Eden and for the first time in my life I finally accepted that it really doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. This is my life, these are my decisions. I might not have everything I want, but I certainly have more than a lot of people in this world and I should be okay with that. And I am okay with that.

My favorite saying in the world is "fuck 'em if they can't take a joke". As sort of an anecdote, I'll tell you a little story. A couple of days ago, hubs and I went to Waffle House for breakfast. I had been wanting to wear my corset for a couple of days and decided I was going to rock it. I slipped into it, put on my tightest pair of jeans, didn't bother to wipe off the make-up from the night before and threw on my high-heeled ankle boots. What did he wear? A shirt with holes in it and matching khaki shorts. I'm sure everyone in there thought I was on a walk of shame and he was taking me to breakfast after a late-night tryst. They couldn't have been further from the truth and it kind of felt good to throw them for a loop. Then we went to the grocery store. It was actually a lot of fun.

I just remind myself that things could be a lot worse. Eventually the feeling passes.

I generally just try to distract myself by doing something I enjoy. I read, play with my critters, walk along the creek near my house, etc...

I just get a cuddle, draw an angry picture, write something/read something/look at something that makes me horny xD Distracting. Whatever I want to do at the time.

Say I'm at work and unable to do any of those fun things? I try to get really focused and sucked into work so I feel like I have a purpose. That's actually good too

Like you and Barney Stinson, I also stop being sad and start being awesome!

It just takes me a day or two sometimes. If I'm just down I might sulk for a day or two and then get up one day and be determined to not be down anymore because there's no point in wasting my precious time being sad about things I can't really control. If I'm feeling down about how I look, I try to put on something that makes me look great. I know that I need to take charge of my body to make the changes I want to see, and I'm finally doing that. So far I'm off to a great start

I'm watching HIMYM right now...nothing suits me like a suit...ahem.

Good for you! Everyone, regardless of stature or success, needs an ego stroke every once in awhile. There's no shame in that!

Lately I've been throwing myself into house projects. Otherwise, I try to workout, or take the dogs out, or something. Otherwise I sulk and life sucks, and I don't like that.
