What if life was like an amusement park, with rides that are fast paced and thrilling and others that are easy going and flowing?  And imagine that you have unlimited passes to go on any of the rides for as long as you wish….no line, no waiting. Would you run from one to other, trying out each one or would you only stick to those that are familiar?  Are you a chill kind of person who prefers the merry go round, watching the world from the perspective of a pastel decorated alabaster steed?  How about enjoying the view from the tippy top of the ferris wheel and then the middle and then the bottom; a consistent change of perspective?  And the log flume that you know ends in getting soaked?  And then there is the loop-de-loop roller coaster that has you screaming in the betwixt and between terror/excitement, face flushed, heart racing, hands in the air as you seem to be flying over the hill, screaming at the top of your lungs.

I know that when I view my day to day this way, it is that much more full and adventurous.  I state emphatically that I am never bored, and I’ll let you in on a little secret…it’s all about being endlessly fascinated with life and viewing it  as an amusement park.  The types of rides you prefer is  a great barometer for the ways you choose to  live your life. 

Can you truly allow yourself to stretch into a different kind of ride of a lifetime? Yeeeeehaaaaa!

A scene from one of my favorite movies: Parenthood beautifully and brilliantly offers an illustration about  roller coaster people vs. the merry go round people.
