How Life is Like A Car Driving Blind Man

I must admit that this is a bit more personal¬†post than anything I’ve had up to this point. It is resonating in my life right now and I really just want to stop and ask for directions.

Don’t get me wrong, we’ve asked the Master, but everything just seems out of whack. So this really begs the question:

What do we do when we don’t know what to do?

It’s Like Falling Rocks

How do we end up in these situations? How do we get out of them? Is a blind man driving? These are things I’ve thought of recently. And I know I’m not the only one. I hear of people going thought tough situations all the time and I just wonder how they have the strength to make it through.

As it turns out, we don’t. Eventually, we get nailed by a rock or two.

People are independent by nature and always think we have the controls or know what’s best to do next. The fact is that our Creator has the plan. It’s ridiculously hard to see that right now though. During times of trouble is when we’re supposed to get closest to Him, but that is one serious challenge.

Not that I don’t have faith. I do. In fact, that’s one of my top spiritual gifts. But that doesn’t make it any easier.

So seriously, where do we go from here? When it seems like all options are not working out. When it seems like every decision is the wrong one. Or every opportunity is fleeting and flys by without reward or accomplishment. When we just don’t know what’s next.

Sometimes it feels like a blind man somehow jumped in the driver’s seat and floored it. – Click to Tweet

The Optimist

Personally, I’m an optimist by nature. Things are always 3/4 of the way full for me. That’s who I am. I think the problem with that is that I rarely accept reality, except when it really truly comes to be. And then the glass is 3/4 empty. That’s a problem.

So I suppose it’s time to turn the glass over and keep on going. I know everything will work out. I know. Opportunities have a way of shining eventually. But until then…where do we go from here?

68 Miles and 620 Curves

Basically, life is all over the road. And this is no straight road. It’s filled with curves like the Hana Highway in Maui. Lots of one-lane bridges, sharp turns and plenty of pitfalls along the way. So back to the question we started with.

What do we do when we don’t know what to do?
