When driving on the highway I find that I don't really have the courage to be the leader of the pack of vehicles that are all going ten miles over the stated limit. Though I've heard somewhere that faster speeds are safer.
May I somehow find a way to apply this thought to other things in my life.

I've attempted before to at least be a member of the speeder's pack and not it's leader, but I always seem to get distracted by my own thoughts and end up straggling behind the rest. Choosing to only go six miles over the limit. It's lonelier at this speed, you seem to be either passed or the one doing the passing.

While being at this speed may be lonely at times I find myself easily susceptible to sympathy for those cars that are broken down stalled motionless on the side of the road. I want to help but I don't really have the skills to do so. So I continue on pass them just as the group of speeders has done before me. But unlike the speeders, me by myself I don't have the comforting thought of "I'm not the only one ignoring them" to make myself feel better about passing by a vehicle in need of help.

Upon passing these broken-down cars on the road, I'm thankful to not be one of them. At the same time though I fear that someday I will break-down like them. Left stranded waiting for help as crowds of people pass me by seemingly uncaring.

When traveling at my speed of choice I do randomly find myself in a pack of others going the same speed and we travel together as one for quite some time. Eventually separating down different roads and exit's. Heading to different destinations some staying longer then others.

I become overwhelmed now and then with my speed. It's at those time's that I choose to slow down and merge between semi's who are going ten miles under the stated limit. It's there I find comfort between these giants of the road moving forward at their own slow pace. Intimidating, but respected and I know that as long as I keep that respect I'm more then welcome to join them at their pace. Free to leave whenever I so choose.

Vehicles on the road. Some moving to fast for me. Other's like me just speeding things up a bit. Those who have chose to abide by the sign, and those who have chose to go slower. All reaching their destination in their own time.

I still find myself thinking of those car's that I passed who were stalled on the road. While I may not have stopped I still hope that eventually those vehicle's did get help and did get back on the road. Perhaps to go back to their same pace, their chosen "Speed" or perhaps even slowing down a bit to assure the same problem doesn't happen again. I just hope they too make it to their destination. Wherever that may be.
