Flying while living

In every life there are ups and downs. Some days it seems as if there are more of one than the 
other. I do wish they were more even. Or maybe they are and I am just remembering one side. 
That happens. We dwell on the pain because it is more poignant and the good times are distant 
memories. I make a concerted effort to focus on the good times because the bad times will always
And while nothing lasts forever, some things just seem to. Maybe we just spend too much time and
energy remembering the wrong things. Things come and go and go and come. It doesn't matter
how much we try to control them.  
The process of living, for each of us, is pretty similar. For every gain 
there is a setback. For every success, a failure. For every moment of joy, a 
time of sadness. For every hope realized, one is dashed.
