Your emotions are there to buffer you. Sometimes
when things are going well, we get sad because we
are bracing for the worse. This "opposite

It is normal to brace yourself against
disappointment. But try to also enjoy what is
happening when it's good. There's a song by
Phoebe Snow called "Something So Right". She

to seem worse than it is, we can open ourselves up
to embrace the possibility that the universe --this
time-- is sending good news our way.
