Sometimes I think.
Sometimes I remember, and consider what happened in the past, and what might happen in the future.
I’m not sure that is always the healthiest or the most reasonable thing to do.
Some people say: “Live in the now”
Of course, people say a lot of things.
The other day I was reminded of some things, and some aspects of life. And I started wondering if those things were over and done with, never to happen again.
Now with some things, that would be a good thing. I mean who wants to get divorced again, or let go from a job again, or go through adolescence again. Or any number of other things. There are all sorts of things that happen in life that aren’t necessarily positive or enjoyable or something you want to repeat.
But, on the other hand, there are parts of life that are actually enjoyable, that make one smile, or feel a little warmth, or feel a little appreciated, or remind you that someone cares about you.
Some of those things are not too hard to come by, for many people. But some things are less common, more rare, and perhaps, alas, sometimes somewhat fleeting. And, of course, those are usually the things that are the most valuable.
Is it good to resign yourself to the idea that some things might never come this way again? Could it possibly be healthy to keep holding out hope?
Or should I just concentrate on living in the now, cherishing what I have and the people around me, making the most of everything that comes my way, and enjoying each day as it comes?
Fuck that shit.
