Monday Quote

I've seen other people do this on their blogs and thought it might help me get back into the swing of posting more frequently. At the very least - maybe it might spur some discourse or other thoughts worthy of blog posts.

So, today's quote:

Horace Walpole - "Life is a comedy for those who think... and a tragedy for those who feel."

I liked this, it touched me on a interesting level as I consider myself both a thinking and feeling person. I find that if I can laugh about a situation- whether the irony or just the ridiculousness of it all, then maybe it is not so bad that I can't survive it.

What are your thoughts? How do you cope with tragedy or life events? By thinking through them or feeling your way through them?

Hmmm, I would say I lean more towards feeling my way through but I balance it out with thinking.

Good question! I'm really not sure?? I do have the ability to see the absurd in almost any situation, no matter how tragic. There were a few moments like that the day I delivered Katie.

I feel deeply, though perhaps it is balanced a bit because I'm not sure I'd see the world as a tragedy.

I am more of a lie in bed and sob kind of girl in terms of coping.
