The future is merely the projection of the now seen through the prism of your imperfect memory. Alcohol often improves the prism.
This effect is know as Beer Goggles.
All hail Beer Goggles.
Also, a note on the past and future:
Be with the Now and become not consumed by the illusion of the past that has already gone and the future which may never come. Now is the only thing that is real and true. There is no spoon.
In case you’re thinking of changing things, because new year and all that shit, remember thus: Change is sloppy, and not an absolute state…
Oh, and respect your demons, they’re stronger than you.
