I once heard someone say, to deal with life on life’s terms. I understood what it meant, but until I was forced to feel the meaning, did I really know what was being said to me. I have changed many things about myself, I changed my way of thinking hoping that my life would change as dramatically as I did. That was the disappointment. I gave ‘life’ a direction for it to travel, it had to travel like that because I had set it up: I drew up a map, gave directions and provided a GPS, just so that life would not get lost. Unbeknownst to me, life had it’s own agenda and it was me, who was forced to travel in a different direction. The lesson in that was, that no matter what ‘you’ may have planned, life can take you someplace else. We are the passengers, life is the driver and we just have to buckle up, put on some good road-trip music and ride.
