Now, I know I just posted the other day that the past few weeks had gone too quickly….but now I’m in the midst of a brutal cold (seriously, I’m trying not to complain too much, but this cold is the worst!!) and I so wish I could hit fast forward.

I wish I could find myself inside the picture above. Doesn’t it look like a great place to be? I bet it is warm in that picture. And that the water is just the right amount of cool to make the heat bearable.

I am not a fan of dreaming the day away – I think it is better to live fully present in each moment we are given. Having said that, I also recognize that some moments just stink. Not in a huge, tragic, horrible way, just in a “wow, I wish I could be done with this” way. And that’s what this moment is like for me. This cold isn’t the worst thing that will happen to me this year. There will be other moments that will be much harder than this one. But right now, I have to admit, I wish I could escape.

And I think the reason is that there is nothing good that comes from a cold. Other difficult moments will have something to teach me. I will think about them and figure out how to deal with them, and eventually I will reflect back on them and understand how they helped formed me into who I am.

But this? This is just feeling crappy with no good to come from it. So,  am dreaming the day away, and I will continue to do so until I am on the mend and can start living my life again.

There endeth the rant!
