In that short span of time, you discover things about you from the past, not big things, but they are crucial–like waypoints on a map. showing you where you’ve been, to avoid the pitfalls that are surely ahead. And in this time, you see that some of the things you’ve done, were the right things to do. They may not have seemed like it at the time–they never do. But on some cold, dark morning, as you awaken and prepare for the day ahead, you realize, yes, that was the right way to go.
