I'm walking along a paved country road. Most of the cars seem to be within the speed limits but there are cars which fly down pretty quickly.
I saw a car go really fast and come up too fast behind a large farm vehicle. Luckily, he was able to pass it because no car was coming on the other side. He did hit some soft gravel on the other side before recovering his vehicle and getting it back on the road safely.
Speed can pay a very high price.
Each of us in life has to gauge how fast we are going and what price we are willing to pay if our luck runs out.
To me, unless the farm vehicle is broken on the side of the road, you will get to where you're going eventually. In most cases there is an opportunity to pass at some point.
What most of us really suck at is keeping patient.
Feeling invested in something or someone can often inhibit us from making the right choice. I have made so many bad decisions based on looking at how much time was invested.
How many years have you spent in a dead end relationship? While I am not one to encourage divorce, I certainly don't support misery either.
I have done a lot of do overs in my life. The older I get, the less appealing they are. While it is a very rough to recognize that the road in front of us is going to block us either permanently or for too long, we have to swallow the pill for our own happiness and survival.
And guess what? It just sucks.
And guess what else? Such is life.
I know it will be really tough but the potential rewards will make up for it.
I keep reminding myself that the biggest reward out there is peace.
I hope whatever you're going through with the decisions that you have to face, that you are able to remove enough emotion to do exactly what you know needs to be done.
I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes below because it just never gets old!
"Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." ~ Albert Einstein
