We Are On a Roller Coaster Ride!

Last Update: January 26, 2019

Usually when someone talks about life being like a roller coaster ride, they are referring to its being full of ups and downs. That's true, but there's more to it than that.

Life, like a roller coaster, is full of ups and downs and twists and turns. Once we are buckled in, we ride to the end unable to pick and choose which way we'll be carried.

In life, we tend to think of the downs as being the rough parts that we would prefer to do without. However, it's those rough parts that make life exciting and propel us forward. How dull it would be to continually move forward in life, but without any ups and downs or twists and turns!

My short ride in Wealthy Affiliate has had plenty of ups and downs as well as twists and turns, but I'm having the time of my life!

I encourage you to hop on and enjoy the ride!

Hi Theresa, looks like you are enjoying your WA journey, it can be amazing how things can just turn up when we kind of need them to.

At the time the down times can be something we can do without, on reflection and time they can magnify our progress.

Keep your enthusiasm rolling, it can be infectious.

Well said! By my ripe old age, I've seen countless ups and downs, and the downs always pass - sometimes fast, sometimes slow, - and good times return.

It's those downs that give us the speed and momentum to experience the ups. Funny is, because of the speed of the downs you're actually not down very long compared to the climb of the up...sprinkle in twists and turns for even more excitement! I love roller coasters! The WA comparison...well said. Enjoy the ride!
