WHAT A CONCEPT.
Here in my part of the world we start every new year by being forced to endure the three most ferocious months of Winter.
This enviwrongmental 'wet blanket' usually dampens our optimism and we cope by daydreaming about Summer.
We fantasize and embellish how fantastic Summer is.
In reality during the Summer months we complain incessantly about the heat, humidity, and mosquitoes. ..
but during the Winter we imagine that Summer is a dreamlike state of bliss.
We always seem to want what we can't have?
Why do we have these ridiculous, overimaginative, brains that torture us with crap like this?
We have the ability to distort the past to placate our circumstances.
We can edit our memories to suit our needs.
Well enough of this tomfoolery!
From now on I am going to accept the way that things are.
Life is too short to waste dreaming up idyllic scenarios of halcyon days of yesteryear.
I am 50 years old and it is time to stop this cycle of avoiding reality.
I am determined to face LIFE with a new, honest, open, approach.
Whatever is heading my way will simply be dealt with without hiding in my little fantasy world.
So far I haven't noticed anything unusual.
How about you? Same old same old?
