If I’m honest, the last few weeks have not been the best for me. Just the stuff of life. With a dash of frustration. A pinch of missed opportunity. And a cup and a half of failure.
But one of the major benefits of growing longer in the tooth is that you learn to self-soothe. Don’t you think?
So when I found myself on the couch at the end of last week, surrounded by no less than 3 empty cartons of Ben & Jerry’s Greek Frozen Yogurt, listening to the dulcet tones of Hanson, and weeping over a particularly emotional commercial for Tillamook cheese, I saw the writing on the wall. It was time to kick the self-soothe machine into high gear.
I hit the gym for some Sweat Therapy. I hit the stores for some Retail Therapy. I hit the business end of my remote control for some Reality Therapy. And, of course, I hit the kitchen for some Calorie Counseling.
You know, the usual recipe for feeling better in no time.
But what’s this?
What to do when all the usual suspects aren’t answering with the warm wash of comfort?
Peanut butter, pizza, impulse shoe shopping and Say Yes To The Dress don’t fail me now!
