Regardless of if the event is positive or negative, rather than longing for the past, we should strive to make tomorrow better.

Seek solutions before settling for excuses.
Solutions may not always be cure-alls, but they often are just enough to make a rough situation more bearable.
In my house, the common solution comes from simple advice.
Get up and move…
Drink a glass of water…
Drink a glass of juice…
Do something creative…
Get some fresh air…
Certainly the ills and woes of life are not eradicated by such simple suggestions, but they are often lessened.

Do we really need to burn down the house in order to get out of the kitchen?
During a discussion with my children about the varied political theater which has dominated the news during the last 12 months, this rhetorical question emerged. Throughout history, a desire for change has often led to radicalization rather than the reasoned thought needed for change to be successful. Sometimes the radical voices drown out reasoned ones and disaster occurs. Other times the reasoned voices prevail.

First I laughed so hard it hurt,
Then later I cried the tears of healing,
Finally, I slept.

The calendar is not nearly as good at identifying the changing seasons as are the critters in the barnyard.
Age makes my thoughts hard to hold on to.
But my wrinkles catch the thoughts as they fall.
Affording me a second chance to cherish them.
