Down this Road


When you go down a road you’ve already traveled, you know where all of the hazards are. You know where to stop, where to slow down and where to speed up. Things are less of a surprise and you are able to anticipate your next move.

But when it’s a completely new road or path, everything is new. Surprises are seemingly around every corner. You find yourself speeding up when you should slow down and slowing down when you can actually speed up. You power through turns, and you can only hope if you launch off a cliff or ramp, there is a road beneath you.

Going down a new road is a lot like life. We have to learn how to roll with the punches. Life’s experiences help us to navigate hazards, but we can’t always predict what will come next or whether we’ll even be prepared when we see those hazards. Most times we are just happy we’re on something resembling stable ground.

In a lot of ways that’s okay. We don’t always have a choice. We can be overly cautious or plain reckless, or we can just live life. On some level we’re going to just have to trust that we’ll get through it all in one piece.
