There are speed limits, caution signs and construction warnings all over the world when driving.

These also apply to our life when you break it down. Time goes by so fast; I have talked about how we should not live in the past, but living, for now, that is a whole other ball game. It is mind-blowing how fast the time goes by; sometimes we even need photographs and listen to music that reminds us of where the time went just to slow down and see what has happened in our lives to get us to now. I recently took a new approach to life; I always thought I was living just so I could die. I was quite depressed about it, and then a little light bulb had clicked. Death is not now, so don’t worry about it now, appreciate the little things and don’t take anything for granted because you never know when your last day will be. The green light is to move forward and to continue with the appropriate speed limit. Let’s consider the yellow light a warning, to slow down and stop if it is safe. The red light is the one that everyone has trouble with, as it seems. We are supposed to STOP if it read it’s a good indicator to not go through if we do accidents may happen. Sometimes we just need to stop what we are doing and take a breather. There are two things that are unavoidable in life: Like a traffic light we have choices, it’s what we do about is what matters. There is very little that we do have control over so staying honest and true to ourselves while living in the moment is a simple suggestion. Everything does happen for a reason, we need to acknowledge that once in awhile or else you might as well run through the red light. Death and Taxes, neither of these we can legally cheat.
