The way things are

It's funny how you can have a whole life of focusing on something, longing for something, dreaming of something--then when you finally find that something, you begin to miss the time when you were focusing on, dreaming of, and longing for that something.

Welcome back! I too have missed your posts.

Sigh. The truth of this one affirms the importance of the oft cited saw, live in the moment. Funny how big a challenge that is, but the present is your life and today's dreams not so much.

And I am reminded of something I heard (read?) once: You know God's really pissed at you when you get exactly what you've wished for.

Be well,

This is the Freudian 'struggle'. The journey being better in hindsight than the destination.
