Inching Forward

I’ve finally found a way to describe myself. I’ve got big city style with a country girl smile! After moving from a small town in North Carolina to the sprawling city of Atlanta, I’ve gotten used to traffic. But I still don’t like it. Traffic here is inevitable. Even with the best-laid plans to arrive early, a highway snag will cause you to be “fashionably late,” even if it wasn’t your intention.

I used to have mental maps planned for my journey in life. Sometimes, (according to my own calculations and goals), I arrived “late” to certain destinations. Even now, there are certain things I thought I would’ve already accomplished in my life. Along the way, I’ve been caught up in a few traffic jams. A stall in the road. Sometimes they were caused by my own volition; other times by someone else’s. Yet, it’s important to keep moving. An inch at a time is better than standing still.
