I just received this in my email and got permission from Scott to share it.
"Yesterday I was feeling lonely, a typical case of the “I’m alone on a holiday blues”, and I noticed my ego was projecting doom and gloom into my future, imagining that this would be my state forever.
So I amplified, and exaggerated it, to the tune of West Side Story’s I feel Pretty.
It made me feel so much better. I dare you to sing it out loud:
I Feel Shitty
I feel shitty, oh so shitty hello kitty I’m in a foul mood
And self-pity is my one and only attitude
I feel yucky oh so yucky what the fucky is going on here?
I’m so stucky, in the quicksand of my guilt and fear
See the shitty guy in the mirror there
How can such such repulsiveness be?
Such a shitty face, such a shitty smile, such a shitty day, such a shitty me!
I’m forgiving, yes forgiving, I’m forgiving my living in pain
And I’m giving… myself love instead of all this shame
