Drive into the Curves

“When life throws you a curve, lean into it.” ~Author Unknown

Our journey is constantly full of potholes and curves. Now with potholes we want to be careful how we travel over them, and take our time so we don’t get too beat up. But curves are better handled if we don’t drag our feet or ride our brakes too much.

Don’t let fear keep you from seeing what’s on the other side of that twisty curve. Be like a sports car and take your foot off the brake and drive into the curves of your life. There just might be beautiful weather on the other side, and you’ll never know unless you try.

Be brave and bold on your journey. You got this; trust yourself.

“I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.”
~Louisa May Alcott

    Cars weren’t made to stay in a garage. We must get out there and drive, even around the curves. Another great post!

    Sage advice as always, Michele. I could use a little Porsche for some of those turns, though. ;0)

    This is a gorgeous and really timely reminder. Thank you!!
    Are you okay with reblogs by the way?
    I wanted to tag you in my last post and didn’t because as far as I know you don’t like doing such things (either way I’d love to hear some of your answers).
    How are you doing?
    Keep driving!!!! Into the curves. In your red (it is red, right? I can’t check by old blog for now) corvette.
    Love, light and glitter


    • Hi Eliza 🙂 I’m playing catch up with everyone’s posts. You can always reblog any of my posts. You’re right though, I don’t participate in nominations/tags etc. I’m doing good, just been pretty busy since August. Hope all is going well with you. And yes, the corvette is red and I’m hoping to go for a long drive this Thursday since that seems like the only non-raining day we’re going to have. xo

    If you go too slow, the pothole is a big bump.
    If you go fast enough, you’ll fly right over it.

    Seek peace,
