Things feel weird. It is hard to put my finger on. It feels like a transitional phase. I have learned to proceed with caution during these times in my life. Who knows what is behind the next corner. It could be good, it could be bad. The trick is defensive driving; keep my foot close to the break, and start slowing down.
But what fun is there in that?
What happened to the good ‘ole days of pushing the gas to the floor, with the music cranked all the way up? We all slow down. We all grow up. We have to start making better decisions someday, right? My day has come. I probably made enough bad decisions to last 3 lifetimes. I changed due to necessity, not by choice. It might have taken me a lot longer to snap out of it if the circumstances were different.
Ultimately though, I am happy where I am at. I think I have always been able to cope well with my newest environments. It is a gift the Good Lord gave me; to see the positive in every situation and make the best of everything. His sense of peace follows me wherever I go.
So why be cautious during times of transition then? You are right. I might as well push down that gas pedal and hit that corner as fast as I can. What’s the worst that can happen?
