When travelling on life's journey it helps to indicate

LIFE is a lot like a roundabout.

They help you get where you are going, but I wish more people would use indicators on them.

Are you going left, right or straight ahead?

That little lever on the side of your steering wheel is there to help others on the road know your intentions, so we can all stay safe.

Who knew?

Lots of you don't, obviously.

Still, I don't know what is worse; those who don't bother to use their indicators, or those who do, but don't know the road rules.

All you need to do is to look at a few SMSs to the editor we have had in The Morning Bulletin lately to see people having their say on what their version of the road rules are.

I am always amazed how many take the time to text a message to the editor but don't take the time to check facts first.

It is not hard to find.

Just log into the Department of Transport and Main Roads website and you will be pleasantly surprised.

But that is how it goes in life.

We all might be going around the same roundabout, but all headed in different directions.

We all have varying opinions on how we should be travelling along our journey.

Some hesitate, paused on the edge, not sure whether it is safe to approach, giving way to every car in sight.

Some aren't sure where they are headed, travelling aimlessly around and around and around.

Others know exactly where they are going, know how to get there, but heaven help anyone in their way.

Then there are those who are confidently travelling along, with not a care in the world.

At times we may be each of those travellers in stages in our life.

Unfortunately there is no website to log into to find out life's rules, and our indicators are often well hidden.

If we know where and when you are heading it can make everyone's journey smoother.

So many have forgotten simple courtesies; things like patience, kindness, caring about others.

No matter which road you head down after you exit the roundabout, try to enjoy the journey.

And if you are happy and you know it, indicate.
