Nothing like getting back into daily chanting (Daimoku) to kick your life in its butt.

"Suffer what there is to suffer, enjoy what there is to enjoy. Regard both suffering and joy as facts of life, and continue chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo. no matter what happens. How could this be anything other than the boundless joy of the Law? Strengthen your power of faith more than ever". - Writings of Nichiren Daishonen - V1 P681

Buddhists tend to celebrate adversity as it is an opportunity to transform your life and reveal your own innate Buddhahood. As nice as it sounds, adversity still bloody well stings.
