 When You're Pulled Along

by Steve Goodier


Do you ever feel as if your life is pulling you someplace you don't want to go?

Comedian Carol Burnett experienced one of those moments when she emerged from a cab one day and caught her coat in the door. The driver was unaware of her plight and slowly began to edge out into traffic. All of a sudden, she found herself being pulled out into the street. All she could do was run alongside the cab as it made it's way down the block.

A passerby alerted the driver who quickly stopped. He jumped out and released Carol's coat from the door. "Are you all right?" he asked anxiously.

"Yes," she gasped, "but how much more do I owe you?"

Life goes like that sometimes. It pulls us along and all we can do is run to keep up. Or it may pull us in a direction we never chose to go and charge us for the experience!

It pulls us into frightening problems and circumstances.

It pulls us into complex situations that call forth the best from us.

It pulls us into experiences that change us and mold us.

It pulls us into the lives of other people.

It pulls us into opportunities to make a difference.

It pulls us in directions we never planned on going and gives us experiences we never thought we needed.

Sometimes all we can do is try to run alongside and make the best of a situation. But if we also let those situations make the best of us, it will always be worth the trip.
