Life is like a turning wheel: you can't always be on the top. Sooner or later you wind up on the bottom.
They do say there is a circle of life. Relationships end, and new relationships begin, or are renewed. Time keeps moving whether you want to or not.
When we are suffering, we may get through it to rise again in hope. Happiness will be regained, but the wheel also continues to turn. The cycle is repeated, and such is life.
We cannot help but ride the turning wheel of our lives, shaped by thousands of relationships, events and circumstances far beyond our capacity to understand, much less control, but even so we are also part of what turns the wheel of our lives in the first place. We are the turning wheel and the hands that make it spin. We are always part of life, always making countless differences, big and small, but we can never truly control life no matter how hard we try.
Life's a wheel of fortune and it's my chance to spin it. …
We all get to make the choices in life as to how fast we want that wheel to spin, or how slowly. I d like think that at this point in my life the wheel is turning slowly. I love life in the slow lane. It gives me more time to enjoy the view.
I had a boss one time that was very fond of saying the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Meaning that the loudest complaints get the most attention. There are definitely times I’m squeaky. The point I try to get across more than anything is we were meant to enjoy this life and be thankful for it. To rejoice in each day we have !
Time is like a wheel. Turning and turning - never stopping. And the woods are the center; the hub of the wheel. It began the first week of summer, a strange and breathless time when accident, or fate, bring lives together. When people are led to do things, they've never done before. On this summer's day, not so very long ago, the wheel set lives in motion in mysterious ways.
