Roller Coaster Life

My life has been on a roller coaster ever since my husband died over 2 years ago. It has been one unexpected, but exciting hill after another.

Have you ever been on a roller coaster?

That slow, deceptive ride to the top of the first hill makes you think, “This is OK. I can handle this”. Then you reach the peak, for one second you see the world clearly around you. Suddenly,  you are plunged, speeding and screaming for several, “this will never end!” minutes. The ride takes you through turns, bends, uphill, downhill, loops and even upside down – sort of like life, only faster!  Finally, you slow down and the roller coaster calmly comes to a stop to let you off the ride. You made it in one piece, but you are changed forever.

Some people love the thrill and excitement of riding a roller coaster. Some people are OK with it and some people absolutely hate it. Some people are too afraid to ride.

Which are you?

    I love the journey and the excitment of living. However, with that said I enjoy the travelling, but like the peace of arriving too.
