Potholes have an adverse effect on a traveller’s experience. They break one’s bones if the car has an awful suspension. Some coffee may be spilled on the leather seat covers if the driver is not careful. And the progress towards a smoother road is always slow because, well, potholes don’t exactly allow you to speed up. You find cursing yourself for trying to take a shortcut. It’s like being stuck in limbo.
Life’s most testing times are when you are stuck in limbo. A way out of your problems seems impossible.
Remember, as long as there is fuel, the car will keep running. However bad the road may be, it still leads you to the right destination.
There is a reason time doesn’t stop, so that you keep moving on.
