Sometimes it seems as if life were a merry go round ride. Only, something is out of whack and the ride has suddenly started moving a little too fast. The colors blur together. The music is too loud. The gentle ups and downs feel more like serious plunges and crests.
The ride isn’t what we bargained for. But we can’t seem to find a way to slow down or get off. It’s in the moments when we realize we’re on the ride, and that it’s getting overwhelming, that we can take action.
Obviously the daily grind can feel like an endless circle of movement that never seems to have an end. But hopefully when you are able to slow down you will see things a little more clearly.
You don’t really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry go round will wave at his parents every time around – and why his parents will always wave back.
William D. Tammeus
A child delights in going up and down, the playful music playing and the game of seeking to find pleasure in those who love him. His parents delight in all things that make their children filled with joy ! The love goes round and round.
If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry go rounds. I would pick more daisies.
On the merry go round of life, we climb up and hold on with all our might, knowing that a moment of distraction could lead to injury or worse. We enjoy the highs, manage the hurts and in many cases, offer the rest to the Creator with a knowing that all is well. We do gain and lose things in life and the hope is that at the end, it all balances out. Enjoy the life you have.
With all the thousands of pictures and graphics that I do have I couldn't find any of merry go rounds. Unbelievable but true.
Life is like a merry go round. You can either whine or find wonder and love the ride
