I live by this. Wallow in your sorrows for one 24 hour period. Cry. Lay around in your comfy clothes. Watch junk TV. Eat junk food. Sleep. Then the next morning start taking steps to dig out of that dark place. Take a shower. Eat right. Exercise. Do something to move forward. It's ok to break down but it isn't ok to stay that way.
when we make a change, it's so easy to interpret our unsettledness as unhappiness, and our unhappiness as a result of having made the wrong decision. our mental and emotional states fluctuate madly when we make big changes in our lives, and somedays we could tight-rope across manhattan, and other days we are too weary to clean our teeth, this is normal. this is natural. this is change. - jeanette winterson
