Life is a roller coaster.
There are steep climbs that have us freaking out from nervousness and anticipation. There are crazy fast drops that have us screaming and laughing at the same time. There are loops that show us how little control we have over where the ride takes us. And there are other people, other thrill-seekers who are on the ride with us, feeling the same feelings and emotions.
When we get on a real roller coaster, we don't have the choice to get off in the middle of the ride. We buckle up and hold on tight. We experience the literal and figurative ups and downs. We stay on the ride because we have to. And 99% of the time, we're glad we did. The shared experience of the thrills and chills alone makes it worthwhile.
We don't really have a choice to get off the roller coaster of life either. It's scary as hell. It's exciting as hell. It's rewarding as hell. And the shared experiences make it worthwhile.
Let's remember today to enjoy every part of the ride. The climbs. The drops. The loops. Let's stay buckled up and let's appreciate that everyone we love is on this wild roller coaster with us.
Make it a great day!
