Yes, the analogy is already a little dated, but the High School Muscial song, “Life is a Highway” is pretty descriptive of life at times, isn’t it?
Sometimes I’m in the left hand lane, zipping by, wondering what others are doing, but not interested enough to slow down. Other times I’m in the right hand lane, wondering what others are going so fast, but not interested enough to “step on it” and keep their pace. Sporadically, I’m in the center lane trying to keep my driving equillibrium. There’s a lot to watch from the middle and a lot of decisions to be made.
Personally, I prefer the two outside lanes.
The last two weeks caused me to take an unexpected blog hiatus. Looking back, I wonder how it happened.
Could it be that working 55+ hours for two consecutive weeks could eat into previously allotted time for sleep and blogging? I say yes.
So, I’m back. In the right-hand lane now just having accelerated from the on-ramp where I still find my wonderful family, my two sons with their more and more independent lives and three cats who always demand attention, feeding and chastisement for being where they’re not supposed to be.
Have you pulled off your life’s highway recently? Run out of gas? Have a figurative flat? Too tired dodging texters who drive? I’ll hang in the right lane if you’ll join me.
Come on! We’ve got places to go, people to meet and life to live!
Just wondering: What do you do specifically to “get back on the highway” in your life?
