If your body was a car

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
If my body were a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it
in for a newer model.
I've got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is
getting a little dull, but that's not the worst of it.
My headlights are out of focus and it's especially hard to see things up
My traction is not as graceful as it once was.
I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather.
My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins.
It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed.
My fuel rate burns inefficiently.
But here's the worst of it --
Almost every time I sneeze, cough or sputter.....either my radiator leaks or
my exhaust backfires!

Something I wrote years ago.

Life is Like a Car

My Life is a car. I am the driver.

If it’s running ok, I can ignore the annoying little problems and body rot. I can also try to fix it.

In my quest for self-improvement and self-betterment, I focus on the vehicle. I change things in my life that I hope will make me happy. I even change things about myself - exercising for example.

Even my body is merely a vehicle. A vehicle is something that gets something else from one place or person to another. A musician is a vehicle for a composer’s ideas and feelings.

What am I using the vehicle, my life, to do?

I should focus on the driver, and on the purpose of my trip - not only on the car.

Many happy people drive clunkers, and there are plenty of miserable ones with perfect lives!

Skier_j, all you need is a bit of paint on the bodywork
(Coppertone (TM) do really good work, especially in Dominican Republic locations)

and some new antifreeze.
