What Doesn’t Kill Us Makes Us Stronger…Or Lucky

Let’s face it – it’s not always easy to pull yourself up by the bootstraps and move forward after soaking in a bad situation.  After dealing with the initial hits, the consequences and the post emotions, you’re pretty much left wiped out – exhausted from the energy it took to endure all the petty bullsh*t and drama.  The good news is if the situation didn’t kill you then it left you stronger.  What the hell does that mean, you may wonder?  It means you’ll be ready for the next time a situation gets rough, tough and down right seemingly impossible to deal with.  But when you’re stuck in one of those ditches, there’s one thing that you can remember that Hottywood strongly believes: NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!  

If you find yourself trapped in a sticky moment and you’re not too sure how you’re going to make it through, there are a few things that you can do to help put your mind at ease.  They may not all be easy, but nothing in life worth having is easy.  After all, if we don’t experience those sh*tty moments, how can we ever appreciate the few good ones?   Sit back, relax, listen and learn.  It’s time for Hottywood to school the clueless.  

To pull through a tough situation, you can always: 

Stop, take a seat and take a load off.  You’d be surprised at how much relief you’d feel mentally if you just release some of the sh*t back into the atmosphere. 

…not to mention how much better you’re gonna feel after that cramp in your stomach dissipates. 

…I’m  just saying. 


Run, smack into a wall – head first.  If the impact of your face hitting the wall doesn’t completely kill you, you’ll get a sufficient amount of rest in the hospital as doctors and nurses watch over you carefully while you slumber deeply in a coma. 

That’s one way to get away from it all…just don’t go into the light. 


Chicken wings always works when the world is against you.  Preferably cooked.   If you’re a vegetarian, how much worse off can you be eating meat than you are playing the crappy hand that life has dealt you? 


Sometimes just saying “No,” is not an option. 

Drink until your face explodes.  Nothing says, “I feel better” more than an oversized cup of 80 proof! 

CAUTION: The pain you may feel in your heart may move into your head after a big gulp of non-virgin.


Never underestimate the power of a giant slingshot.  It can either be your greatest weapon or your greatest chance of a quick escape!   If you choose to go the ‘slingshot as a weapon’ route, make sure you’re fully loaded with a shopping bag full of fresh puppy poop. 

I’ll let your imagination run wild with this one…

Ready.  Aim.  FIRE! 


Put any form of aluminum on your forehead for a better brain reception.  You’re bound to come up with a brilliant idea. 

Note:  This may not be one of them.  

…but if it works for a television set, why not?


Punching — my personal fave — always works!  If you can’t punch someone else, you might as well knock your own daylights out.  

Believe me, this will probably be easier than dealing with some of the blows that people can throw at you,  just not as much fun. 


Whatever you choose to do to get yourself out of or over a bad situation is entirely up to you.  Whether that choice is kicking, screaming, bunjee jumping off the side of a extra tall street curb or gunning yourself down with a semi-automatic water gun, it’s not that hard to get away from it all.  The key to a great escape is creativity.  The lock is reality.  Either way 90% of any effort is getting started.  You can thank your lucky stars for that.   But don’t rely on luck too much because if nothing else, luck can be a real bitch.


Quote of the week:   “Life is like a sewer. What you get out of it depends on what you put into it.”
