A Semi-truck Perspective

The other day as I was driving on the Interstate, I saw this semi-truck coming towards me



My heart skipped a beat or two until I realized that the truck was being pulled by another semi truck. "How dangerous," I thought as I took out my cell phone and snapped a picture (perhaps also a little dangerous).

But, I think there is a life lesson in this optical illusion. Sometimes, I feel the same way I felt when this semi-truck appeared to be coming towards me: how will I get through problem X, Y, or Z.  And then, after a little self-reflection & prayer, some heart-to-hearts with friends and parents, the passing of time, and a fresh perspective, the problem does not seem so serious at all. And perhaps, I am even better off for the challenge.
