Day 4 of the 30 day challenge inspired by We Work for Cheese. The topic - behind the wheel. I have to admit this is one place I don't really like to be, behind the wheel. Oh, who am I kidding? Move over, I'll drive.
Behind the Wheel
My wheel is a monster of a wheel. It's huge and hard to handle. I like to think of myself as Jack Sparrow at the helm of the Black Pearl in a storm. If only I had that lovely little compass that would point directly at the thing I wanted the most. That would be most helpful.
I'm steering a lot of things over here. I don't really like to be behind the wheel, but at the same time I really don't like anyone else touching the steering wheel either. I drive because I am a lousy passenger. I steer our business. I steer the finances. People look to me for the answers. Everyone happily gives me control of the wheel. They assure me how well I do it, but really they just want to avoid the responsibility and only enjoy the ride when its carefree.
But I like the control. I get to control my destiny. No one to blame but myself. And I don't plan on any blame landing on me. So I'm a good driver. I'm a safe driver. Admittedly sometimes too safe. I am the captain of my ship and I decide where to steer her. If only I could make myself go wild sometime and let that wheel spin. Let it fly and see what direction, what new course we will follow. But that takes guts. I would feel safer if I had a magic compass in my possession.
