Warning Signals

Posted on: December 22, 2008

I had just left the unexpected visitor’s house last night when a car warning signal went off. There was no sound just a light. Well it can’t be serious like I am out of gas. But the signal had an exclamation point in it. I had no idea what it meant. When I arrived home I looked in the owner’s manual. The horseshoe sign with an exclamation point means low tire pressure. Now why do the car manufacturer’s put stupid symbols up? Why can’t they put a simple tire light up instead. How many times in life have we ignore warning signals? These maybe either internal or external ones. I used to ignore railroad crossing signals and go around them. I don’t do that if I have my children in my car. But what about the internal warning signals? Those are a little difficult for me. I have a strong fight or flight response. It builds up until I have one hell of an anxiety attack. The last anxiety attack happened the day I quit my job as a Labor and Delivery nurse. The stress of overworking had did me in. I felt unsafe and unappreciated. I am in a better place now. I feel safe within the confines of my home. The rest of my life is another story. I am learning to be in a new relationship. I am learning to love myself for who I am. I am learning not to ignore the warning signals. I need to remember to stop, look and listen at life’s railroad crossing.
