A Little Bit of Symbolism

Life is a fickle thing. One moment, you're just cruising along, having fun and enjoying it, then WHAM! you hit a pothole. Your tire goes flat, but your spare is missing. You're just sitting there at the side of the road, watching others go past, wondering why this happened to you. Of course, you can't just sit there all day, so you get help and begin on your way again, but now you're incredibly stressed and have to cut out that stop at that book store because you are late to where you have to go. On top of it all, it starts raining, but your windshield wipers aren't working properly, so you can't see far down the road, and have really no idea where you're going at this point in time, you're just moving, because you have to.

Yeah, that's what my life is like, right now, symbolism style. I'm just waiting for the sun to come out again.

"Don't waste your life in doubts and fears: spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour's duties will be the best preparation for the hours or ages that follow it." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
