Things change from year to year but in doing so in many ways, it stays the same. There was, and will be struggle, and what seems to count most is not what happens but how we deal with it. How we survive I guess. After all survival can be victorious, making us stronger, even if in our minds, or it can minimize us making us wonder what the hell happened. Life has never been promised to be a nirvana/ heaven, or permanently happy. Life is hard work. Happiness and joy are more a by product of surviving that hard work. It’s temporary but oh my so sweet.
