In my defense, "normal" wasn't a bad thing. But if I stayed in that place of wishing and striving to get things back to how they used to be, I'd miss out on today.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could harvest the fruit of our crops immediately? Seeds go into the ground, you water it, wait five minutes and BAM, there are baskets of fresh strawberries ripe for the picking. Unfortunately, gardening doesn’t work that way. We prepare the ground, plant, tend to the seedlings, and eventually gather a harvest. Planting seeds in life works pretty much the same way.
