Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

10 things — motorcycle lessons

Lesson 1:  Heading out — Start today — Decide that you are going to enjoy this day – it is the beginning of a new journey.  Notice the beauty around you.  Live life to the fullest.

Lesson 2:  Some hills are steep, some not so much.  Sometimes the road is straight — enjoy it!  When you can’t see what’s around the bend, remind yourself that God is still God.  Trust Him!

Lesson 3:  Sometimes life has you up against a wall.  Remember that ‘This too shall pass’.



Lesson 4:  Don’t wait until you are running on empty.  Take time to refuel — life is better when there is a balance between work and play.

Lesson 5:  Sometimes in life an overhaul is needed.   Regular maintenance is important.  Don’t put it off — that only makes the cost higher.

Lesson 6:  Sometimes you are out in front and other times you follow.    Be an example that is worth following   and be supportive of those who, at other times, lead.


Lesson 7:  Road construction and detours are all a  part of driving down the highway.  It is the same in life.  How you handle it says a lot about your character.  Smile, relax and take a deep breath.  It sure beats getting all stressed.



Lesson 8:  When you are at a crossroads, weigh the options carefully.  Sometimes the consequences are  irreversible.  Choose wisely.   Ah,  life is filled with opportunities — make the most of them.



Lesson 9:  When life throws up a stop sign — or something happens that brings you to a halt — look around you – you are not alone.  “A friend loves at all times.”  Prov 17:17

at the stop sign


Lesson 10:  Time won’t stop so you can figure things out or so you can get all your ducks in a row.  Sit in the front row of your life.  Live life!  Be grateful for those around you that are in this journey with you.

  2. LOL — yes we did. Although for the record I do not really care to travel at night when there are sooo many other people who think they need to be on the road. Give me a lonely highway and that’s ok but driving at night especially after a college football team wins their home game – not so fun 😛
