Which Road Sign Describes Your Life?

Maybe someday in the future, we'll have signs that are personalized based on our patterns of behavior. They'll be able to analyze our vehicle's current condition, our level of awareness, and traffic patterns ahead, combining all that information to warn us of potential hazards. Until then, we'll give you a general idea of which sign would be the one screaming out for your attention in that scenario.

Maybe you've been feeling a bit out of control lately. If life appears to be picking up speed and you feel the need to start looking for a bailout spot, your sign might be a warning of a "Steep Grade" ahead. If you're trying to slow down but your brakes are starting to smoke, we're pretty sure that this is the sign for you.

Perhaps you find yourself in a waiting pattern, as other people's issues take priority over yours for the moment. If it feels like you're experiencing the need for patience, a "Yield" sign seems appropriate. Get comfy; you could be there for a while.

If you find yourself heading in a direction that you had not planned on going in, then maybe you're following a "Detour" sign: this would be appropriate if you feel like you're just on a temporary diversion from your soul's true path.

Buckle up, it's time to hit the road.
