I did almost everything single thing on the list below – to myself and others – and what I realized is I was f**ng miserable. They were like little mind magnets – something bad would happen or someone would trigger me and one (or all) of these were in full effect:
Save this list somewhere. I even made it into an image you can download. Awesome, right? And notice if you are doing even one of these. Remember it’s totally ok … it’s just a way you are coping right now. The cool part is we can change the way we cope. But you have to know what you are up to.
So…what are you up to?

And I made this as an image, too. So download, add it to your camera roll, and start living it – right now.
