Our life’s journey is often defined more by what we choose not to do, than by what we do.
I was on my way to the grocery store today and I was waiting to make the left turn from the main street into the grocery mall parking lot. I saw an opening in the seemingly endless sea of cars going in the opposite direction. I pondered my move to make the left turn. And then, I thought to myself, “just because I can make that turn between those two cars, does not mean I should.” My mind, continued to reason, “there is no point in risking an accident when the way would be clearer in just a few more minutes after that car.” And so, I waited for a longer space between the cars and made my turn safely.
This may not be the time to make a quick turn. Take the time you need to plan, to strategize, resist the urge to do something just because you can. Just because you can do a thing is not permission to do it. Be safe, in your life journey today.
