When I was thirteen I ran into a Stop Sign on my bike. Full throttle, head on collision, and awesome sound effects. To this day, my brother says it is because I couldn't read it fast enough. That has me thinking, how many signs are missed in a day? Well, here are a few to enlighten you, and warm your heart.

It's All Going Down the Drain.
Sometimes you can just feel it, all slipping down the drain. Sometimes that is your sign. Sometimes it is the aftermath. In an attempt to be upbeat, you can always say to yourself, "Well, everything must be emptied in order to be filled again."
I tend to believe these kind of signs are more tuned into self-awareness. Examining what is being lost. Maybe it is something you have been losing for twenty years. Maybe it is something you have no control over, and yet feel it is all due to you.
Maybe it is the realization that no matter how good you are, how much you overcompensate, how hard you try, when you don't fit the bill, you simply don't fit. You can perservere, you can attempt to shape shift again, or you can evolve. Regardless, sometimes you just have to learn to live when it's all going down the drain.
