On losing

I’ve lost a lot of things in my long life. People, homes, pets, a few of my organs, a couple of careers, and most of my money (losing the organs helped with that part). I’ve had people ask me how I’m still going, and why I don’t linger in memories or would’ve could’ve should’ve thinking. The answer is simple: it doesn’t help. Moving on is the only choice unless you want to remain in misery indefinitely. It’s brutal at times, and it’s important to allow yourself time to recover and grieve the loss, but then you just put one foot in front of the other and you carry on. Eventually you get to a point where remembering isn’t as painful, but it takes time so be patient with yourself. Life is a journey and there might be something wonderful just up ahead.

Damn you should be writing greeting cards.
Every rainbow has a big old pot of gold at the end of it.
With a mean ass leprechaun sitting on it.

Life blows and as get older get closer to God. That makes up for a lot.

I had my youth. I was able to do stuff that is impossible to do these days. In other words I had it and I had it good.
