Stay In Your Lane

I enjoy walking early in the morning around sunrise.  It is very peaceful, the highway traffic is very light, and I get to see quite a few sunrises. 

I snapped this picture the other morning because it reminded me of something I always try to remind myself to do, and I probably want to tell more people than I do to do the same.  I don’t though because I try to stay in my lane. 

I have learned over the years that if I stay in my lane, and mind my own business my life seems to stay as smooth as it possibly can. 

When I, or others, cross over that double yellow line it’s often like driving into oncoming traffic.  Dangerous and nothing much good is going to happen. 

In fact, if I saw a vehicle coming head on at me in my lane I would likely take a quick turn onto a side street and exit the situation.

When someone gets out of their lane, which is likely every day if you work around others, realize when you need to get yourself out of, or exit the situation. 

It is always a good idea to check yourself too.   Make sure you stay in your lane when you can and should.  Keep your eyes on the road ahead of you because there is enough responsibility with doing that. 

I’m cheering for you.
