Bump in the Road

Thursday, June 20, 2013

Here we are,driving down the highway- we have the car started- cruising along-making good time-knowing we'll get to our destination- when-the bump in the road jumps out-slowing us down to a grinding halt! Even those living an "empowered" & "positive" life occasionally hit bumps in the road.

When life seems to deal us a bump in the road the biggest question isn't whether we're affected by it, but rather how we adjust and grow in spite of the challenge.

If you're currently in a bump situation, remember that you can handle it. You're stronger than you know-& will be back up to speed-as long as you start moving again.

Here are a few driving tips to help us along the way...

1.Focus on your destination (goals)
2.Ask for help-sometimes we need someone to push that car to get it started again.
3. Remember that you are not alone-we all hit those bumps.
4..Look at how far you have come,instead of how far you still have to go.
5.. Start moving ,you will be back up to speed sooner than you think.

Remember, when we focus on our strongest purpose we're always able to weather the bumps in the road.We can do it!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day,my sparkly friends.

    Can you touch your nose and walk down the center of the road?

From Unknown--
A bend in the road is not the end of the road, unless you fail to make the turn

    Life is a highway, I'm wanna ride it all day long, Detours sometimes provide some surprisingly beautiful scenery we would have never seen otherwise! Might as well just sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. . . emoticon

    Thanks Sami, an excellent blog.

I've always loved a couple of your quotes:
'When you arrive at a fork in the road, take it'
'If life doesn't go right, go left'

It gives me a great feeling of adventure when I explore the other side.

    Great blog! Bumps can sometimes lead to detours which can be better than the original road!
