I hope you all are having a nice Monday morning after Thanksgiving. This morning was a bit of a challenge. We didn’t get home till after 7:30. On the way back to St. Louis there definitely was a lot of holiday traffic. I have to you use a lot of energy and calm to drive during the holiday season. There are a lot of careless drivers out. Yesterday I showed some weakness. A driver cut me off and I flicked him off. I still struggle with the way people drive and it really effects me. My wife told me that I shouldn’t do that. It’s dangerous because you never know who is driving and what they can do to retaliate.
She is completely right you never know. It’s better to let it go. I continue working on letting things go!
The world would be a better place if everyone could just understand we are all going somewhere important. Driving for me is stressful because I drive so much for work. On any given day I spend two hours in the car. That’s 10 hours a week I spend dealing with downtown Chicago traffic. For the most part, I try to not let it affect me. Sunday made me realize I need to be better while driving and I still have a lot of work to do on my journey of positivity.
During my stay in St. Louis one thing I didn’t do was meditate. Today I’m going to get back on track I’m going to meditate so I can have more of a calm being. During my commutes to work and clients, I will focus more on things that will keep me calm and collected. We all are human, we make mistakes. We need mistakes, we need to fail to find growth. I’m really excited for the opportunity of being better. Every day is a new opportunity to make an impact on myself and others.
Today as I had some time to reflect and think about how I want my day and week to be. I know the things that I will need to do to have it be awesome. I will need to take deep breaths and focus on whats important to me. My health, family and my time are important to me. I want to accomplish a lot this week. I want to continue my positive journey by working hard on taking time away from devices, being aware of how I feel and adjusting my being to be better for myself and others. How will your week be after some time off for Thanksgiving? Will you take the right step to get back on track?
What will be on your to-do list?
