Beam Me Up

January 9, 2020

2020 — What a portentous number for the new year. The old adage that “hindsight is 20-20” won’t retreat from my head.

Join me in a little exercise: looking back from NOW, can you see any patterns of events/behaviors that have led up to your current situation? The incidents in question were probably so tiny at the time that you glossed over them, but now you see they were integral to your own cycle of life.

If it’s all good stuff, yay for you! If it’s not, well…

Life is rarely all good or all bad. What you do with what you find yourself in is what makes or breaks things for you. This seems to be the year that we all need to be accountable for ourselves, to sit down and take a hard look at reality. Don’t wimp out and put if off. See it for what it is. See your place in the equation. Are you part of the problem (most likely) or part of the solution (hopefully)?

It’s not as if we can tap our little Federation communicator badges and calmly demand to be beamed up and out of whatever mess we are mired in. (Apologies to the Federation.) Shoot, I’ll settle for a replicator…give me one of those, and it will solve a lot of my simpler issues. However, if we could simply beam the truly bad stuff out, maybe into the sun…

Blessings to all, whoever and wherever you are this year. Keep it real, keep it between the lines on the road, and keep moving forward. If we all do the best we can, life will improve.
