Musing on Life after a Birthday

Ever feel like you’re driving one direction and life throws you a curve ball so you pull the emergency brake and slide into a 180 degree turn? It’s not that you’re going backward, it’s that you’ve found a new direction.

Life’s a journey, an adventure, and, sometimes, fun. Rarely boring. Often unpredictable. The only things that are guaranteed are death and taxes (Benjamin Franklin). But along the way, the choices we make change how we perceive things. The people we meet, the friends we make, the family that raises us and guides us, all impact us in one way or another.

We either choose our path or our path chooses us.

That’s when the e-brake comes in handy. You might lose a lot off the lifetime of your tires, but sometimes you need a little thrill to kick you in the pants and break you away from the mundane. We get stuck in ruts and the only way to break out is high RPMs and a quick getaway…or low RPMs and 4-wheel drive. Depends on the rut.

But sometimes, you just want to slide through a turn.
