I am not as optimistic
I used to think life was for the taking. I believed if you thought positively, your life could be good. I went to a funeral for a friend’s mom about one and a half years after Reg passed away. At the end of the funeral, a musician sang “I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack. I used to love that song and believed we should dance through life. When I heard it at the funeral, all I could think was how naïve I was in believing life is for your taking, and you should dance through it. Now, I often wonder if I will ever dance again, literally and figuratively. I didn’t know life could be so painful and could do this to you. Now I do. Now, I have low expectations for life. I often expect the worst, which is a huge contrast to how I used to be.
