If you're in trouble anyway, you might as well have fun! Life has its ways of getting you into a bigger mess than you could imagine. If you don't, somehow, find a way to enjoy that, your life will be miserable anyway. You can, of course, enjoy this part of life, but it will require some effort.
If you're currently down, I challenge you to take another risk. If it works out, you're already on your way back up. If it doesn't, you'll probably have a smile on your face, and a crazy story to tell. Hopefully you will enjoy yourself in any case.
