Life and Passover

You know guys, I'm gonna be honest with you, life sometimes SUCKS. You get traffic tickets. You get served with lawsuits. You get threatened to be arrested. You get deported. You lose money. You have panic attacks. You feel lost and overwhelmed.

And then it all comes to a head and you are just begging the universe to right itself.

And the next day you are still here. You can see the sun is out and the ground is below your feet. You can still hear music. You can tell people you love them. You can pet your dog. You can eat chocolate.

And all that bullshit that happened before? It doesn't go away but it gets dealt with. You pay your bills, you find alternative ways to fix things. You fight back against oppressive people. You may not win, but at least you have the power to do it!

So, we all go through it. We all get drama and suffering thrown at us like the rain pours from the clouds. But we still make it to the next day where we can only hope for the best.

To my fellow Jews - hope this Passover is shared with loved ones. Hope your matzo doesn't make you constipated. Hope your food doesn't get cold during the boring prayers during the Seder. And take the lessons of passover, and life, with you - we suffer but we live to see another day.
