A bump could be an unseen elevation from a blind vantage point that can cause damage or harm… yet, it can be a good thing.
In the busyness of life, we become trapped in a routine that needs to be accomplished before getting into yet another conventional circumstance. Experiencing a “bump on the road” can thwart us from becoming mere zombies who are caught up in the trap of the usual.
…awakens us from the most passionate desire to succeed
…reminds us of the more important things we have forgotten
…shakes us to feel again
… jolts us to realize that we are not alone
…makes us stop everything so we can look up
…allows us to simplify our lives
A bump, after all, is a good thing.
