Mop The Floor And Shut The Lights

inspirational quote on moving on after adversity.jpg

There comes a point when there’s nothing more you can do to make a situation better other than to shut off the lights and exit the building. moving past failure

Too many of us spend precious days or (gasp) years on the wrong people. At the wrong job. Walking on the wrong path. Wasting daylight hanging on to false promises, believing the same lies over and over.

Are you wishing and hoping that soon, THE day of change will arrive? You know…the one where s/he comes back. The top brass finally fires your baffoon office manager. The kid flies straight?

Are you waiting for the dark clouds following you to break up and shower unicorns from the sky farting strawberry-scented rainbows?


Insanity is doing the same thing expecting different results.

You are not insane.

By now you’re spent and exhausted, depleted and drained.

If the reflection in the mirror is a face you’re tired of greeting every morning, stop. Make this is THE DAY you end the craziness controlling your life.

Ah…yes, you say. I don’t need to put up with this shit any more.

No, you don’t.

But wait, maybe it’s not all that tragic or dramatic.

It might be way more benign, but just as exasperating.

Like the lemon of a car you bought. The stupid thing went back and forth to the dealership like a teeter totter.

Every mechanic looked under the hood. Every possible part was checked, rechecked, refurnished or replaced. Meanwhile the warranty expired. And still the piece of crap didn’t work as promised.

What did you do?

You ended it. Replaced it with something that didn’t make you want to rip the hairs out of your head every single day.

You’ve tried YOUR BEST. There’s nothing left in your bag of tricks. What do you do now?

Mop the floor of your blood, sweat and tears. Shut the lights. And move the frig on.
