Stay in your own lane

Can you imagine leaning out of the window of your car and grabbing the steering wheel of the car next to you? What a crazy idea. Yet how often do we try to tell others what they should or shouldn’t do, or direct their actions and choices from our point of view? “Stay in your own lane, in your own car, driving your own self” is one of Iyanla Vanzant’s favorite sayings. She reminds us to stop being so interested in what other people are or aren’t doing, and pay attention to our own lives. Being about what others are doing is a great distraction to having to pay attention to what we ourselves are doing. So stay in your lane…do your own work…be about your own healing and growth….and let others do the same.  It’s a saner and healthier way to drive through life, and you are much more likely to get wherever you are going. and surprisingly enough, so are they!
