A rough difficult road

When you take a turn onto divorce road, you should be ready for a bumpy ride. Its full of potholes, hazards, and scattered pieces of sharp debris. Its a nasty ride thats for sure. Oh sure, you hit a nice patch of road every now and then. The trees clear out, you put the roof down, the birds are chirping…..for a brief moment, its a great day. Just then, outta nowhere, bam! Where did that oil slick come from! You slam into something. My God, where did that come from. Pedestrians are screaming at you. Hey, it wasn’t my fault….what happened to the smooth road? Defensive driving……keep focused…..that’s all you can do. You can’t control the other drivers, only yourself. So keep your eyes on the road up ahead, WAY up ahead, there is bound to be a clearing. I’m sure there is. I know there are much better days ahead. I just wish I had a better map!

    very true words, when you have no navigator you can get lost. The wear and tear on the human mind can take its toll. Keep your eyes on the horizon, see the signs ahead, expect a few detours, and expect to get slammed in to once in awhile. Remember to breathe and maintain your cool, take it as educational training, and an expansion of your learning curve. Enjoy the chirping birds, and accentuate the positives during these times, and remember there is always flickr.ReplyCancel

    what a perfect visual metaphor to go with your editorial. although i can’t say i’ve ever taken a turn onto divorce road, your description might as well be that of any road one takes in this thing we call life. there are great days and there are bad days. there are smooth and paved sections and just ahead are bumps and potholes and oil slicks. but, as you said, when you keep your eyes focused there is bound to be better vistas and smoother rides. and if you think you need a better map, just look around — friends are there to help you in the journey.ReplyCancel
