Life's too short to be pissed off all the time.

Although movies are the culprits behind my unrealistic expectations of relationships and life; they have always been and always will be my only true love.

Out of all of the movies I have ever seen, though, nothing tops "American History X". Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I grew up in Germany. Maybe I'm just more attuned to violence than anything else. Or maybe it's just coz Edward Norton looks so darned sexy without hair and with tattoos. I don't know. But "American History X" is my favorite movie of all time.

There's one particular quote in it that I'd like to share with you right now:

"Hate is baggage.
Life's too short to be pissed off all the time."

If you know me at all, you should know that I spend 99.9% of my time being angry at the world. There isn't anyone or anything that I don't hate. Name something - anything - and I will find fault in it somehow. I blame it on my mother's genes (she's the angriest person I know), but that quote reminds me to enjoy life every once in a while.

Yes, people are assholes. Yes, no one can do anything right. Yes, the weather is uncooperative. Yes, my life sucks on certain levels. Yes, I haven't had sex in so long that I'm practically a virgin again. Yes, God is doing all of these things on purpose to test my patience. But what I keep forgetting is that I should be in control of how I react to all of these things.

I don't think any amount of reminders will ever rid me of my patience, but you know, baby steps are better than standing still. :)

Fortunately, as long as I've got good food in my belly and blonde (in the brain, not literally) friends by my side, the world seems less asshole-y overall. :p

How do you deal with bad days?
...or am I the only one with angry-genes in her system? :/

  1. I deal with bad days by ignoring the bad things (iwas bad vibes). I always think that something good would come out of it. Yin and yang thinking, may balance. Kung may negative, for sure may positive na katumbas. All of these happen after I curse and complain of course. Haha. Love the heart detail on your skirt. <3
