What are your indicators telling you?

Car Indicators

When I got in the car the other day, I took a look at the gauges, lights, and all the other information my car kindly shares with me.  I noted the gas level, where the temperature was, etc.

Then, I really looked at what all these gauges and indicators were telling me.

I had plenty of fuel.

The temperature level was right where it was supposed to be.

My lights were on.

There were no warning lights or indications of any kind.

For a moment, I just sat there in gratitude.  For having enough fuel in the car.  For having a car in good condition that gets me where I want to go.  For lights to illuminate my way – figuratively and literally.  For being the driver in a vehicle and circumstance where I was safe and being taken care of.

What are your indicators telling you?  Not your car’s indicators, but YOUR indicators?

  • Do you have plenty of nourishing fuel?
  • Is your way ahead illuminated and clear?
  • Are there any warning lights you need to attend to?
  • Are you appreciating what you have?
