It would be nice if you could make sure that your life was on track and going well

Sometimes I can’t sleep.

Maybe I’ve lost my bearings. It could be that my body and mind are out of sync with where I should be going and what I should be doing.

Do you ever feel that way?

Sometimes I wish that life would have a setting that would auto-rotate back to where it needs to be. That way, if you go down the wrong path or you hit a rough patch, there is no reason to worry about it because the auto-rotate setting would kick in.

Stuck in a toxic relationship? No problem at all because this setting will pull you out of it in no time and nobody’s feelings will be hurt.

On the wrong career path? Don’t fret! Something will happen, you’ll get a job offer, and before you know it you will wind up in a profession that matches your skills and interests.

Headed to the slammer for being in the wrong place at the wrong time? That’s okay because this auto-rotate setting for life will get you back to where you need to be and there you are.

Default Settings For You And Me

I know maybe it’s just a dream, but wouldn’t it be nice to have a default setting that your life’s auto-rotate setting will get you to. That’s right. That would be helpful for sure.

It’s easy to lose your way and find yourself unhappy about your conditions. Not a problem. You just need to find your default setting, which is where you need to be and what you need to be doing in life.

“Get back, get back, get back to where you once belong," is a line from a famous song. But it’s more than that. Where do you belong the most? Once you figure that out, you will find your default setting.
