The Back Seat

We are all born with a set of keys in our hands…
And it is up to us to decide what to do with these keys. It is up to us to decide who will do the driving.

I have watched people grab the wheel of their life. Struggle to keep the car on the track. Get stressed with the route, with the destination, with the angles, the curves, and the hills. Get stressed with the fuel, get confused with the maps. I have watched them get angry with their fellow passengers, fall ill from trying so hard and get lost amidst so much care and such stress.

But I have also met others. Humble people. People who sit in the back seat. People who, day by day, try to do their best but do not worry. Day by day, they do their best, and then, they let go… They sit in the back seat and let God be God. Let God do the drive…

I will tell you the truth.
I envy these humble people and want to become one of them…
