My 2014 started out very...stressful. Work, relationships, family...everything basically.
Then I realized, stress is everywhere you go. It can't be avoided so just learn to cope. I guess that's probably why I'm in an art slump right now. Haven't been able to create anything new for weeks now =/
Don't get me wrong. It's not like anything negative or bad is happening in my life to cause this sort of stress. People just don't play the game of life the same way you do which sometimes may or may not cause problems and result in stressful situations. This applies to everything though. Not everyone will think the same way or agree with your point of view. People will hate you no matter what you do. People will adore you no matter what you do.
Just accept it and deal with it. Of course, this is just my own opinion and I'm sure others will agree/disagree. :)
On a lighter note, I love watching BBC's Sherlock. Best tv show created since Battlestar Galactica (2004-2009)
My favorite quote from the season 3 premiere:
Taken from the end of their game of Operation:
Sherlock: Can’t handle a broken heart? How very telling.
Mycroft: Don’t be smart.
S: That takes me back. [adopts creepy child voice]“Don’t be smart Sherlock, I’m the smart one.”
M [darkly]: I am the smart one.
S: I used to think I was an idiot.
M: Both of us thought you were an idiot, Sherlock. We had nothing else to go on, until we met other children.
S: Oh yes. That was a mistake.
M: Ghastly. What were they thinking of?
S: Probably something about trying to make friends.
M: Oh Yes. [sarcastic smile] Friends. Of course, you go in for that sort of thing now.
S: And you don’t? Ever?
M: If you seem slow to me, Sherlock, can you imagine what real people are like? I’m living in a world of goldfish.
S: Yes, but I’ve been away for two years.
S: I don’t know. No, I thought perhaps you might have found yourself a…goldfish.
M: Change the subject. Now.
S: Rest assured, Mycroft, whatever this underground network of yours is up to, the secret will reside in something seemingly insignificant or bizarre.
