I once read that the best way to stop worrying about a situation is to picture the best outcome and the worst outcome, and then remember that the actual outcome will probably be somewhere in between. This little trick has stopped many anxiety spirals over the years. And, it's also had the positive side-effect of showing me just how lucky I am. For whatever reason, even the worst situations are fixed by a last minute hail mary or some colossal act of bureaucratic kindness. More often than not, I find myself on the "best outcome" side of the spectrum. hashtag blessed.
Until this May. Oh May, you really handed it to me! While I won't bore you with the details, I will say that the absolute highlight of the month was getting caught in freak thunderstorm while walking into town and being so soaked that it destroyed my beloved macbook. Followed closely by our dog eating a pound of brown sugar and barfing up molasses for 24 hours. And then, on the last day of the month, getting food poising from an ecuadorian food cart, while I was already sick with a cold, JUST FOR GOOD MEASURE.
thank gawd it's June.
