I can’t say why life goes the way it does. Why it is that when you finally get back on the saddle, the horse has a spaz attack and you going flying the other direction once again. What I do know is that a year ago I would have considered these setbacks catastrophic. I would have convinced myself there would be no coming back from them. That the horse was going to trample me on the ground until I had no choice but to stay there.
We live in a world where we are constantly waiting. Waiting for the day our parents finally let us take the family car for a spin. Waiting until we graduate high school. Waiting for our 19th birthday to take that first (legal) sip of alcohol. Waiting for the next best thing.
True or not, many of you might be familiar with Murphy’s Law; an age old adage stating that anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. I’m not generally one for negativity, but let me tell you – I can definitely relate. 2016 was one hell of a year, and while not everything went wrong, the universe definitely wasn’t doing me any favours.
