If there is such a thing as driver’s Heaven, a solid green light would be part of it, right?
Anywhere you chose to go, the light’s always and forever green? That would pretty much make up for the vehicle issued to you upon entry being a pleasantly aged and mildly flatulent Vauxhall Velox Cresta.
Look down, right in front of your feet.
You see it, right? That imaginary bright green line? That’s your starting line. The most fascinating, engaging, thrilling leg of your journey begins right here.
And the best part? No one, no event nor circumstance can permanently stop you from getting started.
There are all sorts of things that conspire to slow you down, even temporarily sideline and distract you. Yet they can’t keep you dragging, detoured and distracted unless you let them.
So what’s your dream? What is it you are wanting to be? More to the point, who are you wanting to become? The starting line’s right there at your feet, and all it takes is a single step forward and you’re on your way. And with the light always being green, there’s nothing outside you that can stop you.
Take that first step. After that, as Amelia Earhart said, “The most difficult thing is the decision to act – the rest is merely tenacity.”
The light, my friend, is always green!
