Life never turns out quite like you think it will, and that’s probably a blessing. The brilliance of age is that with it comes perspective. The older I get, the more I realize that, despite the momentary confusion, resistance, or resentment whenever things don’t go as planned, there is ultimately a reason for everything… Sometimes it’s hard to find the goodness in a moment of misery, but it’s always there.   Look closely.   The rewards at times may seem small, but when you zoom in, you realize that they are really a lot bigger than they appeared at first. Objects in the rearview mirror are closer than they appear… or something like that. Each day, we are given countless opportunities to see the beauty and make it all worthwhile. Life is long. But it is also short. And it’s up to us to make each day count.
