We have a bit of a plumbing situation nightmare on our hands. It’s going to involve some serious drilling outside and possibly a full tear-down of our downstairs bathroom. With the polar vortex and Junior’s due date fast approaching, it’s not the best timing.
Former Maya would have been freaking out about this. Freaking right out. But that’s not my style anymore.
Instead, I’m choosing a different approach.
As I see it, when life inevitable throws you a merde sandwich, you’re much better off with this strategy:
- Assume the best. Don’t bleed until you’re shot. And stop worrying in excess.
- Perspective. Remember that whatever it is you’re going through, however truly terrible the situation, you can probably spin a globe and randomly point to 100 countries where someone is going through something much worse, like apartheid (my friend wrote this amazing piece).
- Believe in happy endings. They happen. Here’s proof and more proof.
Stay warm out there!
