The Old Ways

How long does it take us to go back to the old ways?

I remember when I started to learn how to drive: there was no way I could stay straight on the road without the help of an instructor, taking control of the steering wheel and bringing me back to the center of the lane.

Now I don’t even have to think to drive straight. One-handed if needed. While thinking about a thousand other things or while singing along to whatever it’s playing on the radio.

From time to time we all need to be reminded to stay on the road. Whether it is the right road, the road to change, the better road. We’re all going somewhere but might go astray some times. The only thing that we need is a soft and kind reminder to correct it.

It is alright to stray, and of course for others as well. Just the same way that we sometimes need that push, others might need it too, so be kind when bringing someone back to the road and remember that just a gentle pull should be enough.
