We’re familiar with the saying, When life hands you a lemon, make lemonade.
What might be a corresponding saying to when life throws up a stop sign?
When life throws up a stop sign, speed up to get through it?
When life throws up a stop sign, slow way down and block traffic?
The first could get you in an accident; so could the second. How do we live with the ups and downs that all come too fast, and too many together? It’s as if a warning sign gets posted every ten feet!
Conscious life is a continuous challenge. It’s so easy to become distracted, so easy to miss the warning signs, or misread them, or ignore them.
We’re still in the Easter season, remember? Take time, right now, to stop, close your eyes, take a breath, and give thanks.
Trust your journey to take you where you need to go.
