Enough of the hoops

Posted on May 20, 2010
Jeez ... don't we all feel as if we're jumping through endless hoops to achieve what somebody else prescribes?

Enough!

... if only it was that easy. hahaaha... NOTHING is ever as easy as it should be.

Shell games are easy when compared to the hoops one jumps through just to maintain the "status quo."

My Mom, who has, admittedly, had a very hard life, and is understandaby bitter and disillusioned and cynical likes to say: "shit in one hand and wish in the other - then look to see which hand is full." Bitter reality. Her message? easy: You can't count on a wish. Thanks, Mom.

You also can't count on hard work to get you anywhere - or anything. "No good deed goes unpunished." That's not just a cynical saying - it's actually true - and I've experienced it.

It's just the way things are.
