Meaning and Things Beyond Our Control

We live in Magical Times!

How do you even take a picture like that?!

And look at everything in it!! How many people--so small we can't see them, but you know they're there! And all of the things imagined, designed, built by people!! And all of the things we can do with and in those creations!!

#Magical!!

And we're so powerful these days!

You know, except when we're not.

I think I don't handle disillusionment well. Do you? If so, how? Is it resignation or acceptance of something disappointing? 

I want to use all of my hopeful tropes:

and I do. I use my native Pisces skills to turn around that 360 degrees to find something where I can make a difference. It's a strategy that has worked a long time.

But sometimes it feels like in the Man of La Mancha where his friends and family hold up all of the mirrors surrounding him with "truth"--my friends and family are kinder than that, but the news--well, the news.

What do you do? What is your strategy? Where do you find success or at least purchase to hold onto your confidence?

Let's find meaning--make meaning--together.
