I made my meeting at 5:00 only one hour late, (a one hour trip had turned into two hours, mostly because of decisions I had made) lucky for me the group had not quite finished. Life is like that sometimes, we think we are taking a short cut and it takes us longer to get to where we want to be.
After I realized I was not going to be able to get out of the situation, I did take the opportunity to relax, listen to the music, think about life, and examine the beautiful roadside flowers and greenery.
I was edging forward, at a very slow pace, and perhaps sometimes we have to do this, or life or our bodies will say to us, time for a breakdown, and then we can recover and move on but slowly. Life in the fast lane is for us Boomers but sometimes we have to relax and take some time in the slow lane. Keep on Trucking
