When I was little, a child, I saw all the adults with cars and houses and boats and they were so cool. Now that I’m older I look around and realize all these adults (with cars and boats and houses) are the same people that when we were kids they were setting around picking their noses and eating what they found…

:S

Perspective! :P

So I was sitting in the notorious Los Angeles traffic yesterday afternoon and it took my two hours to go 45 miles. I had plenty of time for personal contemplation and it occurred to me how much our driving behavior on highways is very much like ants. We create a trail and then all of us follow that same trail. We use the trail to move both directions and do our best to find the most efficient routes possible. From altitude, our road system probably looks a lot like ant trails, especially near city centers where the trails all converge.

This would be a great example of emulating nature except that unlike ants, we put barriers and guardrails up to keep everyone in line until a few idiots who are speeding or staring at their phones run into each other and block the path. Then the rest of us have nowhere to go and nothing to do but sit and wait...

If you thought that buying a house sucks, try selling one!
At least I'm not trying to sell one, buy another and time it so that I'm not homeless during the interim...
:huh:

Oh wait, that's exactly what I'm trying to do! :ohmy:

hahahhahha :woohoo:

Perception... no mater how bad I think it is or difficult it seems to be, there are those that are far worst off. I am grateful that I have these kinds of problems to deal with and still need to keep in mind those less fortunate. It is easy to get caught up in the drama of our own lives and forget those that need our help. How we deal with the adversities that face us is just as important as anything else we do. And it also shows the merit if our character.

Good luck Wes, we know its going to be fine , it just takes a while :lol: and yes there is always someone worse of , but that does not mean one cannot dwell on misfortune or self pity once in a while ...

“I have had to experience so much stupidity, so many vices, so much error, so much nausea, disillusionment and sorrow, just in order to become a child again and begin anew. I had to experience despair, I had to sink to the greatest mental depths, to thoughts of suicide, in order to experience grace.”
― Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha

“Grief is a dessert that has to be crossed on foot.”
~Andrew Klavan


This means there are no short cuts or tricks to dealing with it. You just have to cross the desert one step at a time. Sure, it’s good to have friends to keep you company along the way, but it is your journey. This can be terrifying knowing that you have to face something so unpleasant. But, once the journey is through you will be past it and a stronger person for it.
