It’s a dangerous mission, I’m risking my life,
Switching up gears, in the hope that I’ll find,
The speed that I long for, to escape my problems,
Yet the further I flee, the less l seem to solve them.
That’s when it hits me, piercing right to my heart,
The issues are inside me, driving this car!
I can’t outrun them! I pull over, stop speeding,
Look under the hood, and find what I’ve been needing.

We are often told that the swiftest way to attain what we seek, is to go fast… full throttle all the way, yet in practice, this is rarely the case. Why does the term “living in the fast lane” exist? Because if we choose this strategy, our focus is fixed purely on velocity and pace, not quality and longevity, and before we know it, our time is up.
Patience and introspection however, are on the opposite side of this spectrum, where we make an effort not to rush to conclusions, or make rash decisions, instead we sit with an issue, analyse it, find out what drives it, and when we do, we are empowered with the ability to remove its power over us, and move on.
Reflecting on internal matters is way more important (and effective) than peddle to metal strategies. We owe it to ourselves to take our time, when researching and developing an understanding of what’s going on under our bonnet, and applying the proper care and maintenance to the areas that need it.
Mindfulness does wonders for our perception of things, but it also gives us the tools we need to be road worthy; to experience fewer breakdowns; and go the distance in anything we set our minds to.
May your vehicle avoid the scrap yard; and have responsive, desirable handling.
May your journey be fuel efficient; fruitful; and full of wonders.
Love and Respect always,
