As a Forty Plusser woman I sometimes wonder about the meaning of life . Is it really possible to understand life as we know it? The conclusion: Life will always remain a mystery. At times I really need to stop this obsession of mine. Really, not all things in life is meant to be understood. I must stop driving myself crazy – mulling it in my head over and over again… STOP! Yes our lives can seem messy and slow with times.
Life is a constant “under construction”process. Life has its own way of telling us when to stop, slow down, be quiet or to avoid dead ends.
Road signs help to give travellers directional information. The traffic stop sign is a good example and representation of signs along life’s journey. A stop sign tells you to stop moving and that you cannot progress further. Stop signs are wake up calls that you are heading down a destructive path in life. Sometimes it is necessary to just stop. If you drive along the road, you see this red sign, the stop sign. You cannot miss it. The stop sign is an indication that you have to make a complete stop before proceeding driving further. There are always things in our life that will force you to make a complete halt! Are you blocking the driveway of your own life? Stop that. Move on.
Forgive yourself for your past mistakes! Quit stuff that you genuinely know is wrong or illegal and can get yourself into trouble. Stop if you are on the wrong road! As a Christian “sins”are a life stopper! Make a u-turn if neccessary! Stop signs can protect you from a potentially dangerous situations. Stop and get rid of that “”litter dumping” inside your head! You must stop moving forward with negative thoughts. Stop judging people by mere appearances. Stop doubting yourself. Stop making excuses. Stop and learn to stay within your own limits. Stop and listen to your conscience(the private police inside your head).
Stop and don’t make “jump in, first feet”decisions. Stop and look at all the possibilities before making up your mind. Stop letting fear rule your life. Stop and get your feet positioned firmly back on the ground. Observe, and when it is safe to proceed… you have a choice to move in a different or more positive direction.
Wisdom: ““The more you talk about it, rehash it, rethink it, cross analyze it, debate it, respond to it, get paranoid about it, compete with it, complain about it, immortalize it, cry over it, kick it, defame it, stalk it, gossip about it, pray over it, put it down or dissect its motives it continues to rot in your brain. It is dead. It is over. It is gone. It is done. It is time to bury it because it is smelling up your life and no one wants to be near your rotted corpse of memories and decaying attitude. Be the funeral director of your life and bury that thing!”
