Things As They Are

Seeing things as they are, and not as we want them to be, is so very tedious
It would be nice if this were all part of some larger cosmic hokey pokey
And maybe it is
But I suspect there is much more random chance than Divine Design
More Fractured than Fractals.
Zombies seem to enjoy the notion that someone else pulls the strings
I think the land mines were randomly set
For whoever comes along
I'd hate to believe 
My own personal holocaust
Was pre ordained

Just want to say hi and HANG TIGHT! Things will get better!!! Midlife crises are temporary, and as my husband always reminds me..."No condition stays the same forever"! It will evolve to something wonderful...right around the corner! Best wishes, and hugs!

I think that midlife crisis is just a label we hang on to-so that the younger kids will think that we had it all figured out earlier and have temporarily "lost it".

I used to bemoan my mind that is constantly fiddling with things, trying to change them, experiment, make them better. But, I see know if you think you have it figured out, then you stay stuck and are unable to move later on if you want to. I don't want to be like that either.

Maybe midlife is where we finally get the courage to admit that we really don't have any answers at all.

seeing things as they are and not as we want them to be is a malady of middle age...bugger it all to hell and back I say.

I think mid-life is where we discover we have some of the answers. More answers are coming along, just as the lessons will never stop arriving on our doorsteps. As long as we learn from some of it, we're ahead of the game, right?

"I'd hate to believe my own personal holocaust was pre-ordained"

That is something to think about.
I love this poem.(?)


Now that I am 50 I have way more questions but I'm becoming better at asking better questions.

I wouldn't go back unless I could take what I know now with me.

"More Fractured than Fractals."
