Life is an ebb and flow of emotions. In my youth I wanted a house, a wife, and children. Achieving those goals, not necessarily in that order, I was on the path of the American Dream following in the footsteps of my father. However, expectations, reality, life pressures, and a yearning for something deemed missing lead to a divorce.
Learning is an important aspect of life. If we don’t learn from our mistakes we are doomed to be a failure. If we don’t sit, question, and reflect on personal failures rather than play the blame game, we are doomed to repeat those exact same experiences. Living should be about growing and learning from previous mistakes. Our OWN mistakes, not the perceived mistakes of others. It is called ownership and I own my mistakes.
As my summer of disenchantment draws to a conclusion I find myself back in that miserable state of reflection of my failings. In spite of my best intent, I find that I am not very good at being married. Because of my personal failings there are drastic, life altering, changes afoot in the AHD world.
