You Are the Author of Today

change_your_life2

Your diet may not work, but you do. The latest fad might fade away, but you won’t. You are the life force behind change. Every decision, every discipline, every effort, is chiseling away; revealing the masterpiece within.

Don’t rely on things, methods, people, ideology, traditions; utilize them, and then create your own. All Creation lives within you! You are alive. Vibrant. Spectacular. You are powerful, beautiful, loved and lovable. There’s no better you than you.

Don’t give your power away. Be careful who you credit for your success. Great inspiration doesn’t transform; it ignites. You have the right stuff. You are made of the right stuff. Deep down inside of you is the you you’ve always dreamed of being. Today is your day to let your light shine, to let you come shining through.

Be you through and through. Love yourself. Hold your head up high. Do something today that makes you feel a bit taller. Stretch up on those tippy toes and smell the air up there where you belong. Celebrate yourself!

Leave the sad song, the who did you wrong song. Drop the chains, the guilt and the shame. You are not a mistake. It’s all been a test to show you how strong you are, what you are really made of.

Go out and create what you want today. It’s your life. It’s your story. You are the author of today.

What Happens When You Give A “*#%>!”

angry.driver.thinkstock.2

That little extra “*#%>!” you give the person you blow by on the road for blowing by you, is killing you softly.

Each time you gesture out of anger, or negatively engage with another person, even silently, you are destroying a little more of the life within you. You give your power away every time you let someone get under your skin.

Find your strength within today to let those people go by. Bless those who curse you. Love those who spite you. Eventually they will disappear from your radar and even the busiest road will seem like you have it all to yourself.

Consider the follow road rage statistics the next time you feel like giving the other person that little extra “*#%>!”

Live longer. Be Kinder. Don’t Let Stuff Bother You.


Road Rage Statistics

The following statistics compiled from the NHTSA and the Auto Vantage auto club show that aggressive driving and road rage are causing serious problems on our roads.

  • 66% of traffic fatalities are caused by aggressive driving.
  • 37% of aggressive driving incidents involve a firearm.
  • Males under the age of 19 are the most likely to exhibit road rage.
  • Half of drivers who are on the receiving end of an aggressive behavior, such as horn honking, a rude gesture, or tailgating admit to responding with aggressive behavior themselves.
  • Over a seven year period, 218 murders and 12,610 injuries were attributed to road rage.

One scary statistic worth noting is:

  • 2% of drivers admit to trying to run an aggressor off the road!

Thursday’s Thought: What Are You Waiting For?

Ezra Pound Quote - A slave

Today’s Thought: What Are You Waiting For?

Key Question: What if they don’t show up?

Waiting is a pathology often influenced by faith. Faith that one day, some day, up ahead, then, when — everything is going to be. If it’s not, it must mean it wasn’t supposed to be, or, it isn’t time yet.

That type of thinking will burn through years of your life before you wake up and realize what you’ve been waiting on has been waiting on you.

Today’s the Day

What would you do different if what or who you were waiting on showed up today? I suggest you go to work doing that right now just in case they don’t show.

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.” — Ezra Pound
