Life is hard… Or is just an illusion? To me it’s a journey of looking for something. Yourself mainly; but what could you do to be useful toward your friends, family and society. As a child we go to school and try to learn and grow at the same time. Sometimes we develop obstacles that make our journey longer than it should be. We are told one thing and do what we are told not to do. Curiosity yes! “That’s it”. The one defect that weakens us is curiosity. How many times we do the opposite because we are intrigued by certain situations and try to figure them out even though others have tried and failed? To compete and fail is someone else’s victory. I remember a friend of mine when I was very young; if you said you did something he will say he did it also and better. As a young man I felt my decisions were good and I got it done no matter what was in front of me. I gave much suffering to my family over my sick and crazy life. My mother always gave good advice and she used to say, “What you do to me, your kids will do it to you”. In that quote my Mom was right, however, I did have one encounter with one of my children. My daughter left to hang out with her friends when going to High School. It was 10pm and I was steady looking out the window worried just like my mother did. She got home at about 10:30 pm and I ran up to her and said “where the hell was you” “she says” Dad chill out I know what I’m doing.” I was in the twilight zone. I answered my parents the same way. My daughter she did turn out to be a good person and is doing great. The next day after that episode I called my mom and told her how sorry I was for being so cruel; for I was worse when young. I couldn’t even think of dealing with what my mom dealt with. I was only a couple of hours worrying; and almost lost it! I must have had a strong mother. I would be missing from the house for 1-3 days at a time. She lived to the age of 91.
Have a nice day :0)
