The Roller Coaster Ride Called “Life”. Dare to Ride it Alone?


The most thrilling, tantalizing, INCREDIBLY SCARIEST RIDE you’ll ever dare to take!

Sometimes I don’t want to experience the same ride as the last time…

My life has been feeling like a roller coaster ride.  Don’t get me wrong, I love roller coasters.  The real ones that is.  But lately I’m not quite sure exactly what kind of roller coaster ride I’ve been on.  One day, I can be happy.  Everything around me seems real, in synch, in tandem, as though I’m on the right path…

and goddamn it, I can see it clearly!

But the next day, or maybe even within hours, or even just seconds…

It’s crazy.  It’s fun.

This roller coaster ride called life is different and unique.  It’s also very, very scary.  A ride I can’t even anticipate as to what’s around the corner.

The incline’s seem so steep and there’s a lot of them.

The descents have me barely able to breathe, convinced I won’t survive!

I started to realize that I was  shrinking into my Self, trying to hide;  not wanting to go on any more roller coaster rides…..

But by closing my eyes, I wasn’t OFF the ride!  By facing Life and all of its challenges, complexities and perplexities, and by realizing that I’m not on this ride by myself, this rollercoaster called life is something to be shared.
