calm down

i was driving home yesterday from work. tryin' to get home as fast as possible to see the two ladies in my life! the last mile before entering our subdivision is a 35 mph zone. yesterday a car was doing about 15 mph and had several cars backed up. some decided to go around the car disregarding the double yellow lines and some honked their horns. i started to get frustrated too, but i stopped and calmed down. I DID WHAT? yeah.....i was shocked too! i thought to myself....there has to be a reason for the pokieness going on up there? it was an elderly couple that seemed to be lost.

yesterday some put their lives in danger by taking on the oncoming traffic and some got so mad that they cussed out the elderly couple. WOW! have we gotten to a place that a slow car can put us in a state of rage and have us make decisions that could cost us our life? at the end of the day it may have cost me another minute of my life to drive patiently behind the lost couple. so the next time you encounter a situation that makes your blood boil quickly. take a minute to calm down and reason the situation before you make your decision. it may cost you less than you think.

WOW!! I am quite impressed. :) So true, Babe... so true. Why do so many of us live our lives on the edge of boiling? And much of the time, we don't even recognize it.
