pick a lane

September 5, 2011


pick a lane.  it sounds so simple, doesn’t it?

there are so many life decisions and they all lead to different places and different people.   the “what if’s” kill our liberty.  we can be frozen in front of the fork in the road, just evaluating and picking life to pieces.

yet one facet to this that i believe is worth mentioning is you.  the facet of self.

we are who we are.  or should i say, we should be who we are regardless of what lane we end up picking.  as we settle in with our values and mission in life, our circumstances have less and less to do with how we live.  as our identity becomes well rooted, we stop picking lanes based upon forming our identity but instead on fulfilling it.

we can pick the best lane for us when we give up on the idea that one lane will make us better than another.  value and honor in life doesn’t come from circumstance or location but from how we live within them.  so feel some freedom in picking a lane, it has more to do with moving forward in life than in predicting where each road will take us.

    “we can pick the best lane for us when we give up on the idea that one lane will make us better than another.”

    interesting statement…I love the idea of fulfilling instead of working toward the identity. thought provoking to say the least!
