Full Throttle, Crash and Burn

Have you ever had everything in the world falling into place for you, yet you just get hit by a wave of sadness or other raw emotion...... all at once? I know I have. Sometimes is seems to be almost too bizarre to even comprehend. You are fully concious that life is great, but there is also no mistaking the fact that you are sad.....and for what? Who knows?

Often during times of intense transition(s) or decision making, we start racing a million miles per hour, never stopping to slow down enough to assess what is happening emotionally. We ride a wave of adrenaline accompanied by a new romance, a job offer, a move to a new place, or some other opportunity....and we just go full throttle.

Eventually, things slow down just enough for us to soak it in and BOOM!, we crash and burn. We become overwhelmed by exhaustion, saddened by the fact that we've neglected other areas of our lives(or that maybe we've neglected this aspect of our lives until just now), or sometimes we realize we'd be happier doing something else. Just when we think we've figured it all out, and climbed to the top of the highest mountain, we are forced to dodge the avalanche that is now headed our way.

If you have kicked on the rocket boosters in your life and you are going nothing short of full throttle, more power to you. Success is most likely around the corner if it has not already arrived. Just be careful not to run out of fuel all at just might crash and burn. I wish you nothing but the best! Take care everyone!!!

See you next time!!!
