Salmon are funny amd mysterious creatures. They spend their entire lives trying to get back to the place they were born just so they can die...
In some instances of my life I feel as if I am swimming upstream, traveling to the place of my birth only to die.
A person can spend years traveling upstream to get nowhere and at the end of the journey only find youself dying.
It seems I've spent fifty years swimming upstream, going in one direction to get to the end of a journey that has taken over my life, consumed my waking hours.
Swimming upstream really gets you nowhere in life. You can't spend an eternity fighting an opposite current because in life you aren't meant to go backwards.
Don't be a salmon swimming upstream to only die. Life is meant to be lived in the present. The past can't be relived, can't be rewound and can't be rethought.
Go where the current takes you....
