It is impossible, without age, to really understand how everything can be turned around and changed in just one split second; how this world we live in can be so kind and forgiving in one instance, and then so cruel and cold in the next. We all pretend to cherish the golden moments, but in hindsight many of us let frustration and restlessness mutilate any opportunity for actual good cheer. Perhaps it is self-pity, an internal loathing, a hole in the heart of the naive. Or perhaps it is merely human nature.
As we begin to start things new with the transition from one year to the next, let us remember that we are our own worst enemies and our own best friends wrapped up into one complex package. The best New Years resolution suggestion I could offer would be to do yourself a favor, and get out of your own way. PnL Mike
