Have you ever been riding in heavy traffic and it seemed like all the other lanes were moving so much faster than yours? You get frustrated then eventually you force your way into the faster moving lane. Then it seems like that new lane that you just switched to all of a sudden slows down and the one you abandoned is now moving at a much faster pace and you get frustrated even more now your road rage has kicked in...... Happens to all of us at some point. I bring that scenario up to because it is very real and I want to say this. In life we are all in our own individual lane. Though our lane may not be moving as fast as we think it should be, we have to practice (and here comes that word that most of us dread) patience. What we cannot do is we can not look into other lanes, get frustrated and then try to be lane hoppers thinking that we will move just as fast as them or faster. One thing that I know is that everything is not always what it appears to be. We must learn how to be patient with the lane that we were designed to be in and the speed that we were designed to go and stick with it until we get where we are needing, trying, wanting and supposed to be.
There are sooooo many times when I have looked at the people around me and those on social media and I have either begin to do things outside of my ordinary, or I have gotten myself into some crazy head spaces. Head spaces where I thought I was going to need to be committed to a mental institution. In those spaces I have questioned me, doubted my abilities, downed me and even quit just because it seemed like everyone else was moving so much faster than me. I know I stated earlier that things are not always what they seem, but I want to add to that idea that we also don't know what those people sacrificed to move at that faster pace. And when I say sacrifice, I mean both good and bad things. I can sacrifice my time to pray and give, but I refuse to sacrifice my family, my morals, my values, my integrity or my character just to get there quicker. I don't know about you, but that stuff is super important to me. So in that case, I think we should all stay in our little lane and move at our own individual pace no matter what speed it is. We'll definitely get there as long as we are heading in the right direction.
Plus, I don't know about you, but I don't want to get there too early because that might cause me to have to just and to sit and wait anyway. You ever rushed to get somewhere and they weren't open yet? No fun whatsoever. I want to get where I am needing, trying, wanting and supposed to be right on time. Don't you? Just hold on and be patient because you don't want to start doing things outside of your ordinary. Or things that will have you compromising your everything. We'll get there. Right on schedule.
