Slow quote: How many people’s bus do you ride?
January 24, 2010
If you haven’t discovered Late Bloomer Bride, yet, you are in for a ride! It is full of life’s wisdom. The blogger has a most cherished wit that routinely lands me on the floor ~ rolling.
I was a late bloomer in every way possible, except for the bride part (I got married at 25). Her quote of the week will give you a taste of her offerings. This particular quote’s message serves as a marvelous intersection between mid-life issues and the power of slow.
Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down. ~Oprah Winfrey
How many people’s bus do you ride? Are you in one or two? Do you show up for all your friends or for only a select few? Would you rather have a large circle or a few intimate people to accompany you on this journey?
I have a few bus-riding friends. The rest, I would guess, would enjoy the champagne and the limo ride, too. It’s the ones who stay after the party to help clean up that count as my closest buddies.
