Why Do We Chase Our Losses? Let Go When It Feels Right

This title is what I've been doing ☺️  Lol. WHAT a good question to ask, eh?!

Much like an annoying mosquito, when you try to catch things as they're meant to pass, life will almost always bite back.

"YOU CLOSE, BUT NOT CLOSE ENOUGH!" the mosquito says.

It's true, ain't it? We end up sad and hurt because of what's happened. We remain unconvinced even when the inevitable end -- our loss -- is clear and obvious.

Ah, human emotion 🌊

We chase. And then we blind our intuition because acceptance is a cold and lonely betch. What's meant to move will drift, and it'll do so when it pleases. This won't always be a bad thing. When it counts (and you'll know when), you should go with it -- and nix the passivity.

(My original metaphor for this post got lost in the sauce. I cut the whole thing out. Maybe I'll revise it with a new point........)

After this grim, post-election day in NYC, banding together is what we all need. I hope to meet you next week at Sixth Street Community Center for my Meditative Writing workshop. We'll be there on Tues. Nov. 15, 7-9:00 PM. (More details here.) Or come to New Women Space tonight for an impromptu women's circle. From 8-10:00 PM, we'll be chatting about this shift that America's currently facing and what this means -- open dialogue, open dialogue, o p e n dialogue. Here's how to get there. Comment if you dug this post!

Talk super soon,
