Hubby and I were down on the Gold Coast this past weekend. As we were driving back to Brisbane, we passed Dream World amusement park. I looked on in horror as I saw a huge roller coaster with people being flung about all over the place. One moment they were completely upside down, and the next right way up again, before being plummeted straight down vertically 90% at full speed. I am not a fan of such things, and will NEVER understand why people would pay good money to have the crap scared out of them.
I don’t need a roller coaster…. life is doing that for me just nicely right now.
Sometimes when you think you have finally sorted it all out and you can move forward in a direction, that whilst a tiny bit uncomfortable, at least you know what’s happening and what direction you are headed in, and you have made peace with that decision…. then POW!!!! Life takes a sharp left turn, 180 degrees, and throws you fully back into tail spin, and total confusion. What you thought was real… isn’t. What you thought was the direction life wanted you to go in…. isn’t. And for all intents and purposes you are back to square one, and none the wiser.
What to do …… what to do…..
Regroup I guess.
Maybe learn to accept that not everything is going to be understandable, logical. Some things happen for reasons, that we can’t comprehend, or that we just can’t see from our limited perspective at this time.
Hold on tight.
Riding life’s roller coaster was just part of the price of admission. You can grab the railing in an almighty death grip, close your eyes and pray that it all ends soon…. or you can just through your hands in the air, scream out in delight, and go wherever this crazy ride is taking you.
