safieri: what a turkey would look like if you were on an acid trip (Default)

Of all the skills I could have learned growing up, I think adaptability would have to be the most useful. Things rarely go exactly as planned in life and being able to change things up and go with the flow without freaking out too much will help you much more than long division. Unless you happen to use complex mathematics in your day to day tasks. If that's the case, it's much more helpful than knowing what year Columbus sailed the ocean blue (1492).

This opinion is reinforced every time I watch a particular friend LOSE THEIR EVER LOVING SHIT. It happens almost every other day. Whenever some hurdle pops up, they fall to pieces. Now I don't claim to be some solid rock that stands up to everything and never wavers (trust me, that's not the case at all) but not every problem is worthy of a meltdown. Car trouble is horrible but hey, you're somewhere safe and not stranded on the side of the road. Having problems at work isn't ideal but if your boss is actively helping you improve, that's a blessing you should be taking full advantage of. Take a breath, hold it, let it out, and keep going. Because life isn't going to stop just because you're having trouble dealing with it. It's kind of a bitch like that. Aaaand that's all I have for today. Peace and take some time to sit back and chill.
