Behind the Wheel, Running Out of Life

Insight #305

We fight with our fellow-passengers and other drivers, and we whine, “Are we WHERE yet?” (Created with Microsoft Copilot)

Have you ever started your car, taken a convenient highway and kept going until you ran out of gas? Of course not. Yet, many of us seem to live that way. We keep going at the same stuff until we run out of life.

Highways are littered with signposts pointing to options and alternates. We ignore most of them, because we already know which ones to look out for.

Life comes loaded with signs, but we ignore them for the opposite reason. We ignore them because we don’t know where we are going and so we don’t know how to recognize the right signs, the signs that can help us.

We live as if we are still passengers in the family car. We ignore the moment we’re living in, we fight with our neighbors (passengers and other drivers), and we whine, “Are we where yet?”

So it comes as a shock when we finally realize that we are behind the wheel of life. And that we are running out of gas.

Enjoy the drive, because you are not there yet.

Welcome to my side of the nonsense divide.
