Whoa…I Swerved Outside The Lines A Little.

You know that moment when you are driving and you catch yourself swerving outside the lines a little… Then you snap the wheel back over to center up the car back inside the lane?  Well, that was me the past couple of days. 

  1. I had a bad couple of days where I was snacking on too many sweets. 
  2. I lost focus on my “big picture” when it came to “my definition of my perfect life”.
  3. I let myself get in the way of myself when it came to my attitude.  I got down on myself.

Well, I just eased the car back in between the lines this morning.  Sometimes this happens…fix it immediately before you are so far into the shoulder of the expressway you crash and burn.

    Sometimes its not that easy, when you’ve swerved so far out and stayed there because it fit for the time, and you’ve made the adjustment in your life to stay there its hard to get back to the center because you liked being outside the line. You then take on the new thought pattern to where you believe thats where you’ve belonged all the time while in the back of your mind you just know that you were destined for more but you cant remember what that was and you then feel lost and unable to get back to center because others now depend on you outside the line and time has started to run out on you. You feel lost.

      I agree James. Things can get out of control and in a blog post, it sure can come across as it is as easy as just turning the wheel back to the left or right and you are back on track. But, in all honesty there are a couple of things that need to happen to make sure that you get back to a place where you feel like you are taking the right route.
      1. Set your destination! There are always 100 different routes to get to that destination, but no matter what you plan your route.
      2. Set your time frame! Are you looking for the shortest route, the fastest route etc… This is your game plan so to speak.
      3. Know that to get to your destination, you are going to have to change lanes every now and then due to the fact there are obstacles… (other cars, construction etc…)
      4. Get to your destination no matter what. Whether there is traffic, road closures, wrecks…it doesn’t matter. Your destination didn’t change.
      So, plan your ideal life…adjust your plan based on the obstacles thrown at you and just Get To Your Destination…your ideal life. Don’t ride around aimlessly.
      That is the analogy I was going for in my blog today. I know difficulty and live it daily, but my destination that I have set for myself is worth the ride! Thanks for reading James and feel free to hit me up anytime.

    Don’t beat yourself up. I know you, and you will get right back on track! (and then some.. You may even over correct, haha)

      Too True! Too True! I do tend to “over correct”, I mean “over think” it sometimes. But, I have the best co-pilot in the world to help me get the car back where it is supposed to be! WINK
