Be calm ... Stop stressing ... Embrace the universe ... Try yoga ... Be fulfilled ... We're overwhelmed with these sorts of commands, and we often torture ourselves to 'try harder', yet somehow we never feel we've done quite enough. It's about time we stop pushing ourselves to do what we think we're supposed to do, and instead simply allow ourselves to be angry, be tired, be silly, be passionate – to give yourself a break, and just be.In C'est La Vie, Midal offers us a new solution to the perennial problem of our too much, too fast modern life. It's OK, he urges us, to say no. It's fine to quit the things that don't make you happy. It's necessary, in fact, to give yourself a break if things don't go your way and say, simply, C'est la vie. Midal gives each of us permission to stop doing the things that don't make us happy ... so we have room in our lives for the things that do.
