Today, I am going to share a couple of “vehicle” stories, and how they have taught me a little about life … ! It is funny how even the little things that we tend to remember – good and bad – help us to appreciate life in this moment!
We must be willing to let go of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us
– Joseph Campbell
I remember when I was learning how to drive, my mother was teaching me how to park – of all places, in a busy parking lot between two cars. So, I took her up on it, and decided to back in…
Well, my parking job wasn’t going quite as I had planned, and I was stuck! Stuck between two cars, and I was starting to panic!! My mother said to me, “Sandy, you got yourself into this predicament, now get yourself out!!” I remember that moment as if it was yesterday!! That is one of the best things in life I’ve learned from my mother. It helped me to calm down, gather my thoughts, and figure a way to “get out”!
The truth is, life is going to have its ups and downs. You see, there will be “predicaments” in life, where we all expect for something to happen a certain way, only to realize that change can happen just as fast, causing it to turn the opposite direction.
This may cause disappointment, and perhaps resentment, in some situations. HOWEVER, we need to not expect so much in life; to not make too many plans in our head for the future. We need to allow ourselves to accept the changes that are “waiting for us”.
I’ve always believed that everything happens for a reason; SO, here it is:
LEARN from the past (as much as it may hurt at times).LIVE in the present.LOOK toward to the future.
For in this moment, we have no idea what is in store for us!!Just take one day at a time, and be thankful.
Appreciate your time, with the people you love.Accept ALL changes that life brings you. ❤️
