Happy New year (2016) blog no. 41.

Published by Lamont D in the blog Lamont D's blog. Views: 286

So that's my sixtieth year over!
Where has it all gone?
Well, like most people, they know but it has gone so fast, that it's really difficult to remember everything and unfortunately, forgetfulness is part of growing old.
Sometimes you're convinced that you have Alzheimer's and then you remember you haven't!
Sometimes you remember to forget or you forget to remember!
Sometimes you select what you remember, about things you shouldn't forget!
Most of the time you want to forget what you don't want to remember!
But at times, you can't forget, what you didn't want to remember!
I believe that is what bringing the New year is all about. Remembering what has gone past, but hopeful that the New year will bring life and health, wealth and stealth for your next part of your life!
Hopefully the year will be good to you!
But sometimes it is not! And you can't change it!
That's fate, karma, life in a nutshell, things happen that you have no control over!
I want to wish everyone a happy New year, but I now realise, that happiness is in short supply and you have to make the most of what you have and hope and strive for the future.
I will finish by a short message, maybe you have heard or read a version of the same theme!
I think it's appropriate, at this time of the year!

If you live in the past,
You will miss the present,
And won't see the future coming!

Happy New Year
