What kind of roller coaster rider are you? White knuckles death grip? Schizophrenic—laughing with joy one moment and crying with fear another? Or childlike wonder? Now look at your life. I’m betting how you ride a roller coaster closely resembles how you live your life.
White Knuckles Death GripLife Philosophy: It’s a “dog eat dog world”— ruthless and competitive.
Forecasts doom and gloom
Superficial relationships: fear of intimacy and authenticity
Dreams: safe… easily attainable… self-preservation
Life Philosophy: A better tomorrow awaits on the horizon, but until then, let’s be realistic.
Calculated risks— safety net required
Decisions— pros and cons list
Relationships: within circle of influence— reciprocity mandatory
Dreams: the starring role is rightfully yours.
Philosophy of Life: The sky’s the limit!
Risk taker— regardless of the opinions of others
Continually seeking personal transformation
Change the world attitude
Authentic and transparent relationships
Dreams— other centered, not confined by the narrow mindedness of others or culture
This life is to be a great adventure— the ride of your life. Don’t let anyone or anything rob you of childlike wonder. It’s the fuel that powers a life of destiny and legacy.
Hands raised. Let the adventure begin!

Positive and encouraging. The ups and downs of life — guaranteed to keep us challenged and entertained. To ride them with a childlike attitude involves trust that something/one else is at the controls, always with our ulitmate happiness in mind.
Thanks! Couldn’t have said it better.
Mine is “child-like wonder.” It always has been. Many times I’ve been too trusting and gotten burned, but it has never stopped me from trusting. God is always here to help me through the pain and hurt.
Only within the last decade have I been able to do something that you’ve been doing for a lifetime. I’m jealous.
