I hated Physics. In fact, I looked forward to days when there was a substitute. I could care less about a ball rolling down a hill gathering momentum. I never understood why I needed to know the speed two trains were traveling in opposite directions. It was all Greek to me, literally. Interesting enough, I love rollercoasters. I love the build-up before the big drop. I love the quick turns and the loops are the best.
Now, imagine your whole year as this thrill ride. You spend the first part of the year debating whether or not you are going to get on the ride. Then, you finally decide, and you get in line. This is what I like to call the "hurry up and wait"part. You make it to the front of the line, and it's finally your turn. You board the coaster. The anticipation is building. You are having second thoughts, but it's too late. The bottom falls out. You hit that first drop. It's not what you expected, but it wasn't that bad. Next up is a quick turn. You didn't see it coming and before you know it, you're in a loop. Your life has turned upside-down. You're not in control. The car is building momentum. You're going fast, and just when you're starting to enjoy yourself. The ride is over.
What's the lesson? Enjoy the ride. Take advantage of life's momentum moments. They propel you into your destiny. It will be over before you know it.
