I’ve pushed through the “I’ll never write again feeling” and life is great!
But, I’m not making any promises because who knows what could happen, right?
It’s not that I like to disasterize life, but I want to be prepared – JUST. IN CASE. Imagine my life is a car on the road, I’m constantly looking at the ditch to prepare in case my
life car ends up there. Where’s the best place to crash? Can I hold on until I get across this bridge? Who will I call first? What if I can’t reach anyone?
And before I know it, even though my
life car is still on the road, cruising along as nice as can be, I’m upset because I haven’t prepared properly for the life car in the ditch.
Ummm. Let’s get back to today, shall we?
life car is riding smoothly down the road.
Wait! What’s that on the side of
my life the road? AHHHHHHH!!!!
Keep your seatbelt on, your cell charged, and your eye pn the road!
Or, maybe, the way will be made clear.
Dear, Janet. Yes, I know in my soul that what you say is true. I’m working on getting that through my thick skull.
Maybe move out of your “thick skull” and into your flexible body??? 🙂
Yep, life and our cars have similar aspects. Sometimes it’s smooth sailing and other times there are obstacles to dodge and knocks to fix/recover from.
Don’t know about you but I feel my life has been full of knocks and my machine/body has needed lots of maintenance.
Dear, Yvonne. Sorry to hear your life has been full of knocks. Sometimes I feel like a two-year-old and shouting, NOT FAIR!
Oh my god! I mean, tish and tosh, what’s a little apprehension in one’s life? I loved the little car and ditch metaphor. Hee hee!
It could be worse, Teresa. That little leak you have in the basement you think is a plumbing problem could be a foundation problem caused by some bad Native American karma. You know that little plot of Johnson County land that you “own”, may have a previous owner.
Dear Dean-Dane-Zane. I can’t believe I wasn’t worrying about that! Thanks for the heads up.
