People walk around pissed off.

I’ve been like that a little lately. Let’s face it, life can be a shit sandwich that forces us to take a another bite every morning we get up.

You get dealt crummy cards and things knock you down that you don’t see coming.

Is anger a likely response? Of course.


Does it help? Of course not.

My goal is acceptance. To somehow look at life as this absurd, unordered slot machine with weird payouts. When things don’t go my way I want to shake my head, sigh and move on to something I find worthwhile.

When i can get my head around that attitude I’m less angry.

It’s all about not demanding that life be anything other than what it is.

And it’s a bad slot machine.
