life well lived : dealing with disappointments

This week's Life Well Lived question...

How do you deal with disappointment, and what lessons do you have to share from those experiences?

Here's the part where I dazzle you with all of the tools that I've learned through reading 248, 356, 983 self-help books (and spending almost that amt of $ in therapy)...

Uhm. Well. Let's see. 

Right. I actually don't have any tried & true methods for turning lemons into lemonade, or grey clouds into rainbows. I don't always look for the open window after the closed door. 

I do the same thing that y'all do. I cry. I vent to friends. I eat chocolate. I drink wine. I cry some more. I watch vintage Grey's Anatomy. And then...

I try to find one thing to be grateful for. Just one thing. It can be small. 

As for lessons? Well, I working on that. :)
