I drive for a living. And never have I ever had a job that most paralleled my personal life. I depend on my GPS constantly and continually. Although this technology is beyond amazing that a satellite in the sky can help me find a destination that I’ve never been to, sometimes that technology gets it wrong.
Yesterday while I was traveling my navigation told me to turn into a creek. If I would have followed its instruction and turned left I would have been upside in an embankment. This reflects a great part of my life right now. There are a lot of different directions that I could go, I have a lot of voices around me. If I would have followed some of those voices I would have been upside in an emotional embankment today.
As I type these words this morning, in the middle of overwhelmedness, I realize that I need more resources at my disposal and less voices in the driver’s seat. I’m looking to simplify and downscale all the areas of my life, and that idea gives me peace.
