What can I say, I guess mothers always know best. She tells me to be constantly on my own feet, be prepped up and ready for the worst of all scenarios under whatever circumstances. Easier said than done, but always true. That’s life: You climb high, you fall hard. You depend too much on one person, the more lost you’ll be without them. You put excessive trust into something, the deeper your disappointment when that faith is betrayed. Life comes at you too fast and next thing you know, you’re flabbergasted by the things it throws into your face. “When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.” …Right, but what if the lemon is squashed flat on your nose and you’re inhaling the lemonade instead of drinking it. Okay, so my imagination overwhelms me …but you can’t deny the truth of the analogy. Nobody knows what comes tomorrow, the thing that sets us apart from each other is simply your readiness and my lack thereof.
