Whoever said life was straight forward would have to be kidding. From high up in the air to down on the ground there are curves everywhere in our world …
And things don’t always go as planned. Even up in the sky, when the pilot announces “there’s turbulence ahead so fasten your seat belt.” Yikes.
That’s when I hold on … and pray.
But we land safely. And it’s smooth sailing as we cruise past the Sydney Opera House.
Out camping one weekend we hold onto the side as we walk across this curvy trestle bridge
It’s actually very sturdy with strong foundations despite looking like it could tumble any minute. A bit like my state of mind lately. I think I’m stronger than I feel.
Then there are times when we’re faced with obstacles and our true skills are tested.
It takes a real driver to handle the unexpected moments, the challenges and all the curves.
Often how we handle them determines how far we get.
Straight roads do not make skillful drivers – Paulo Coelho
I’ve posted this photo of Arkaroola before but I just love the way the road curves.
Looking down from a distance gave us a new perspective on how far we’d walked and where we were going. Much like in life.
But we move on. There’s no point standing still. Life is about taking action.
But sometimes we can have too much and our world gets flipped upside down. We don’t know which way is up. And we lose our focus. I know this feeling well.
And not just on these thrill rides at Dreamworld in Queensland.
But things always slow down. It’s the rhythm of life.
And our world becomes upright again.
Just like the radio telescope at Parkes. It makes we wonder what else is out there.
I guess I’ll keep searching. Staying on the path, with all its curves and bends.
Like this boardwalk in my hometown of Sale, leading me somewhere new.
Sometimes the walk is an uphill one but with effort we’re rewarded with magic.
Yes, life is beautiful. The places we go and the curvy characters we meet along the way.
Let’s just make the most of every day, regardless of what comes our way.
May we all embrace life and feel strong enough to handle any situation, whatever curve ball is thrown at us. Stay in the moment and enjoy.
Wishing you a happy and peaceful week ahead as we continue the journey.
