The Eye Opener
Friday, Jan. 15, 2016

Looking back at our ambitions and aspirations, we can recall many things we wanted and which we thought would make our lives complete. Some of them were impossible; they were the offspring of childish dreams and, later on, alcoholic wishing. Some of those things were possible for others but unattainable for us with our limited abilities.

We can now accept the fact that those things were not for us and wouldn’t have been good for us if we had had them. Some of them we obtained and wished we hadn’t. Their realizations were nothing compared to our expectations and, the more we got, the more we wanted. Ambitions were never realized because the more we advanced, the more the horizons receded.
