I am feeling a bit philosophical tonight, so you all have been warned. I have always thought myself to have a clue when it comes to life. The strange thing about that is.......the older I get the more I realize........there may be no clues, for me anyway. Just when I think I have it figured out............well........the rules change? Or maybe it is that I never understood the rules to start off.
For instance, you might fall in love with someone when you are young and think that this is it. You believe you will get married, have a family and live happily ever after. Then you start to hear about the statistics of young love and its success rate. It appears that the rules are changing. Then you get your heart broken and you think your life is over and once again it feels like the rules are changing. You meet other people, you date, you eventually find someone else you fall for. Then you begin to wonder which set of rules apply to this new relationship. Is this the happily ever after? Are you still too young? Is this the heartache express?
You see, it seems like this is the pattern of life to me. That there are sets of rules that I clearly do not understand. Health......Nutrition......Right......Wrong.......Republican......Democrat......
Life......Death........Love...... it is as if their definition changes daily. Then I wonder if it is just my own evolution that brings to a higher understanding of the things in my life. Or maybe these are all just pieces of a puzzle that I need to keep turning until I have them facing the right direction so that they will fit with the right place. Either way, I have a lot to learn.
