A Green Light

Friday, September 4th, 2015

You may not immediately recognize a green light.

Mostly because you aren’t ready to move forward.

The green light might be flashing in front of you for days months or even years

and it’s only because of the right timing and circumstances that you see

what has been there for quite some time.

That’s the beauty of a green light–it patiently gives you the go ahead

to proceed when you’re ready.

Green Lights

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Sometimes we don’t immediately recognize the green lights we get in life.

Mostly because we aren’t ready to move forward.

The green light might be flashing in front of us for days months or even years

and it’s only because of the right timing and circumstances that we see

what has been there for quite some time.

That’s the beauty of a green light–it patiently gives us the go ahead

ready when we are.

Stop Short

Saturday, February 8th, 2014

Have you ever decided to stop short?

Years ago I spoke with a dear friend who told me about her time in college.

She was a good student and loved her major which was teacher education.

She told me about how she studied hard but in the end decided not to finish her degree.

She was three credit hours shy of finishing and decided not to continue.

She stopped short.

I thought, all that work with nothing to show for it.

She guessed what I was thinking and told me she was okay with the decision because at the time she knew it was the right thing to do.

We all stop short sometimes.

Like when you’re in a conversation with a friend and planned on saying something but decide not to. You think better of it determining that the timing is off or the thing you were going to say is better left unsaid.

Or when you’re headed out the door to a particular destination and decide not to go.

Or when you apply for a job, want the job, need the job, get the job but decide not to take it.

Or when you apply to get into a degree program, work like a dog to pull together the application materials, turn it all in and are accepted into the program but then withdraw.

Green light decisions that turn red.

There’s a reason we stop short.

Clarity we either didn’t see in the first place or didn’t acknowledge until after the fact.

Maybe we thought it would be cool to do or have whatever we decided on but don’t think about whether or not we can actually live with taking the action.

Some decisions are huge and effect us the rest of our lives–like marriage.  Couples decide to get married even though they’re either not ready or not at all sure about one another. Only after they’ve walked down the aisle and the excitement has died down do they see the decision was a mistake.

Sometimes we have to say yes to see no.

We have to be on the yes side of a decision and try it on for size to fully see the implications. If it’s not right we’ve got to trust our instincts enough to put on the brakes and pull out.
