:: I am driving me

I am driving me.  I can be who I want to be. I can be what I want to be.

There are times in our lives when we are passengers on someone else’s journey. We may think we want to head to the same destination at the time and end up going along for the ride, but the problem is that we are not driving the bus. We are merely passengers.

If you are just a passenger on someone else’s bus then it’s time to get off. Be who you want to be, live the life you want to live and drive your own bus. It can be a frustrating business watching passengers being taken to places they don’t want to go! Sometimes it’s not enough to just press the bell, sometimes you need to run to the back of the bus and pull the emergency stop. Only then can you start your own journey.

A bit random I guess and just an observation, but I needed to get it out of my head. I also need to get on with # 34 Buy a bus.

*Today’s photo is the result of a delay at Madrid airport some 10 years ago after a 4 day stag trip/drinkathon and is one of the funniest experiences I’ve had in a terminal based environment. I’d go into more detail, but think it would get lost in translation! Be who you want to be people!
