Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.
Carl Jung (via observando)

I feel “fat” if I can’t master a task at work. I feel “fat” if I can’t please those I love. “Fat” is how I blame myself for my failures. “Fat” is how I express my anxieties. A psychologist once told me, “Fat is not a feeling.” If only it were that simple. As for so many women, the pathology of self-loathing is permanently ingrained in me. I can give in to it, I can modify it, I can react against it with practiced self-acceptance, but I cannot eradicate it. It frustrates me to consider what else I might have done with the years of mental energy I have wasted on this single, senseless issue.

Lana: You want to see crazy?

Archer: No I’ve seen that movie, and, spoiler alert, it ends with a closet full of my suits on fire.

Lana: I wish you’d been wearing one.

Archer: Who would want to wear an on-fire suit? !

Lana: Cosplay enthusiasts!

Second time at the park today. First was hugely unsuccessful. So unsuccessful I left my hand made quilt there in my stress. And did not realize this until 3 hours later. Which was terrifying. I picked k up from school and went back. It was there. Just where I left it. The second time was much more rewarding for all of us. I did some sketching and yoga in the sun while the kids actually played. Without much whining. #Iamstillinshock #mykarmaisntasterribleasithought #smallvictoriesinaworldofstepsbackwards (at Settlers Cabin Park)
