Well today on my lunch break I went to the post office. On my way, I became aggravated when traffic slowed to a snails pace - after all, we were in a 45mph and doing 30mph. Muttering under my breath as I pulled into town and noticed that the oncoming traffic are all stopped and a couple of them are pulled over. Odd - I do not see any police or anything then it dawned on me! I bet there was a funeral procession up in front of me. So, now I feel bad and thinking well I am much better off than they are so I should be thankful!
It reminded me that I need to slow down and think about positives instead of being grumpy and negative. Now let me just say that I did not get the happy go lucky with a positive outlook on life gene. But, I am trying and some days I am more successful than others.
So, my advice is slow down and observe your surroundings and smell those flowers :) or enjoy that cup of coffee. Life gives us some great reminders if we take heed!
