I was driving behind a very slow driver and became irritated at his pokiness. Finally, the road turned to four lanes and I was able to pass him. I was feeling so satisfied!
And then I had to stop at a red light, and wouldn’t you know it, Pokey pulls up right next to me. We ended up being at the same place after all.
I think life often flows like this. We feel like we are getting behind, but really it is just the rhythms that change. We get ahead or feel like we’re lagging, but in the end, often equilibrium is restored and we are right where we are supposed to be.
The next time you are frustrated by a slow driver or feeling smug about passing one, remember that the road of life has many stoplights. Stay focused on your own journey without comparing it to those driving next to you.
