Go Forth:

Monday is coming and I'm trying a different strategy, a pre-emptive pep talk. Somewhere between now and Friday, there will be an existential crisis, probably hours of depression and self-loathing, maybe even tears. I'm telling you now you can handle it. There is nothing that will happen between tonight and Friday that you can't handle. Your life is your life and and it beats the darkness:

Your life is your life don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
Be on watch.
There are ways out.
There is a light somewhere.
It may not be much light but it beats the darkness.
Be on watch.
The gods will offer you chances.
Know them.
Take them.
You can’t beat death but you can beat death in life, sometimes.
And the more often you learn to do it, the more light there will be.
Your life is your life.
Know it while you have it.
You are marvelous the gods wait to delight in you.
-Bukowksi, The Laughing Heart
