..just bloody embrace it. There are ups and downs. This is a down. Ok, my downs are like, really really low. Maybe try to alliviate the down side for next time. (I had hoped - during my last down time, that it wouldn't re-appear again...ha. Close your eyes and make a wish)
Make a plan.
For next time.
Which is - save 10% of everything I earn.
Don't own anything. Unless I can make a downpayment of at least 50%.
Stick with it.
Just do it.
oh man - I have worked on way too many ads.
