Every once in a while we run into an urgency in our lives that makes us stop the car and run out to deal with it. Somewhere between the first and second MRI was my moment to slow the car and pull over.
At first all you can think about is the urgency. The “this is here and now and if I don’t deal with it I will explode” feeling. Overwhelming. That’s what it is. And we’ve all been there; not one of us is exempt from it hitting us in varying degrees throughout our lives.
So pull over and stop for a few minutes and understand the dynamics of the situation. My hearing is hurt because… or my life is changing because….or my life hasn’t really changed because….. so many variables to understand. Stop and pull over.
We’re not defined by the moments we need to be held up but by how we climb back up the bank, get back in the car and continue the adventure. I’m back in the car and on my way.
By the way, this photo is of my Mom and sister – which yes, has provided my brother and I endless amounts of sibling glee over the years and I have to admit…..it still does. It seems we never really grow up.
