I was out to dinner with a good friend the other night.  We were discussing a series of events that had transpired in her life since I last saw her.  Her description of the journey made me think of a really fun ride at an amusement park, thrills and laughs at the same time!

Have you ever thought of life as an amusement park?  Think of the park itself.  It’s got something for everyone.  There are games, parks, water features, food, shopping, benches… and of course the RIDES!!  I am a big fan of the rides.  The roller coasters are my favorite.  They have unexpected twists and turns, big highs and deep valleys,  speed and slow motion.  I recently rode the famous Coney Island Cyclone.  It did not disappoint!  I loved every minute of it and I smiled for days afterward.

Life can be like a really fun ride… There are some highs and lows and a lot of little twists and turns, but the end result of the journey brings a smile to your face and a fond memory of the trip.  Start looking at your journey in this way.  Add some new adventures if you seem to be missing the fun.  ♥
