Essentially life is full of speed bumps. Nothing remains quite the same. Dealing with those speed bumps is the meat and potatoes (hmm - tofu & veggies ramana?) of the story that is our life. Everyone has dreams. Some are even lucky enough to live those dreams. The HS jock made it all the way to the show. He scored the winning goal, hit a home run in the bottom of the ninth in the seventh game of the World Series, wrote a blockbuster novel, broke a life-changing story. Or not. He met a girl along the way, they have 2 kids and 5 grandkids, or he gave up his scholarship, got married and started a different life. He became a copywriter, she became a nurse and is living out her dream with him. Fate? Randomness? Or just stuff. Stuff as in life.
life is after all what you make it. Or make of it.
So keep on dealing with those changes and speed bumps. Keep putting one foot in front of the other and moving forward - taking the occasional sidestep or backstep as is necessary. But keep moving.
