Life is full of hopes and dreams. We may call ourselves blessed when they come to pass. What do we call it when they don’t? It is likely more common that our desires do not come to fruition – why then should we consider them cursed? Our disappointments often have built in lessons and wisdom. We are all, then, learned and wise! We need not think of our unfulfilled wishes as blessings, but neither should we feel ourselves misused. We are entitled to nothing more than a chance to live; let us make the most of that promise, each and every day. May we be blessed and cursed in equal measure, the yin and the yang, the harmonious balance in all. For all we have been given, which is infinite, we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
