A new healthy approach to life, as recommended by leading figures in the health and well being field, is to adopt a business method to your emotional welfare. For anyone who has ever worked in Hospitality, the Food & Beverage field, this method will come as no surprise. Company policy will always allow for breakages, spillages and wastage and after you have cashed up, write them off and move on with tomorrow’s business. Appropriating this system into your lifestyle can take many forms. E.g. When next you feel the proverbial sledgehammer of a complete c*nt smashing your nerves to bits through his rude behaviour or annoying habits. When next you feel someone crushing your spirit through his vindictive carriage or when your heart is demolished by some devastatingly handsome Lothario. First: Take stock. Second: Count your losses and your blessings. Thirdly: If you’re at a loss, take heart as there’s always tomorrow. And lastly: Write it off as a breakage/spillage/wastage and chalk it down to an experience earned, a lesson learned and a life lived. [Cecilia Garcia]
