My response letter from The Universe

Dear Jane:

We regret that your recent "adventures" have involved nausea and other nasty symptoms.  We understand that you have had difficulty with the challenges you've faced and continue to face.  We apologize for these inconveniences, but must remind you that what appear to be problems are lessons, not punishment.  We tried to get you to appreciate life with a fully-functional body, decent cash flow, and an occasional beau, and sometimes you were a bit indulgent in your moods ANYWAY.  As a favorite song from your childhood goes, your motto has always been, "I can't complain, but sometimes I still do."  So, your good fortune had to go away, at least for a while. You needed to see that "regular life" in the old sense of the phrase was really a great life, and that the world is full of possibilities and adventures. You needed to learn what real challenges were.  And now, you have.

What we gave you was strength. We know it seems like we gave you one unsurmountable problem after another, which we kind of did, but think about this: will you ever take the things you treasure the most for granted ever again? Will you ever get into anything that's over your head? Will you ever allow your "pride" to have a say in the choices you make? Hell no- because you know better. And that's that.

We are, however, more than happy to grant your request. If there's anything that you need, it's good times with friends. We will do our best to steer hurricanes away on any weekends when you have out-of-town plans. We will try to coordinate your life with those of your friends so that your paths can intersect.  Finally, we will do our best to keep you healthy and walking steady through life.

We wish you well on your endeavors.

As ever,
The Universe
