Life Accelerates

I wrote this on 8/20/2007 and it's every bit as true today.

I was sitting in a meeting today and someone said "Life accelerates."

Talk about something resonating, While it's accelerating, I'm trying to hold on. It's like riding a rollercoaster in the dark. Not only does it keep getting faster, but I never know what twists and turns are around the corner. Will something happen to slow it down or will daylight come and give me visibility the things waiting ahead?

Life's bumps

I saw this sign and had to pop out of my car to take the pic.

It made me smile.

What if all of life's bumps could be labeled this clearly?

My immediate thought was, "You'd avoid them."

But then someone pointed out that we wouldn't always and questioned whether we would want to.

That's right. We wouldn't always, for a variety of reasons. Maybe it's too late to avoid it - too late to change course.

Would we want to CHANGE it? Lovely. Those bumps inform us of who we are, who we want to be - they teach us how to be different.
