Starting off the new year with a cold feels like an absurd but accurate metaphor for life

What I mean is thus: it is good to get a new start with a new year, but it is not entirely possible to leave everything from the previous year behind

The important thing is to not let last year’s bad times overshadow the possibility of good times in the future.

It seems to me that the most difficult challenge we all face is to acknowledge the effects of events in our past without dwelling on them and thus repeating them or never really learning from them because we’re stuck

Those things that have hurt us before are somewhat like a cold: if we ignore it, we remain sick. If we dwell on how bad we feel we also stay sick.

The only way to actually get better is to admit that we’re sick and doing the needful things to heal

Sometimes healing is a pain in the rear…but, just like remembering to take medicine when we’re sick and taking all that was prescribed we know that the hassle will be worth it in the end.
