As you're driving down the road taking everything in, someone begins tailing you with great intensity. You can feel them practically breathing down your neck. I was driving this morning and this scenario happened to me. I saw her face in my rearview mirror scrunched up with disgust. A normal reaction of mine would be to become super animated with some colorful adjectives and keep increasing my speed. As I gazed around me, I saw so many treasures of the morning and felt silly getting worked up about a speedy person on the road.
I immediately pulled off on the side of the road and allowed the car to pass me. As I got back on the road, I felt so much relief and satisfaction for having followed through with a better choice for myself. Can any of you relate to this scenario?
As I continued the rest of my drive I got to thinking about this situation as a metaphor in life. Sometimes we try SOOOO hard, that we continually create friction in our lives. Can you feel the anxiety of life/getting to your destination/projects/commitments and work creeping into your mind? As Baron Baptise says, "Try easy." Most of the time if we were to pull off the road, really get off of the hamster wheel of thought we can see that the anxiety we feel is self imposed. One of my teachers has a saying, "We tell ourselves stories and the story you tell yourself is never a good one." Brilliant!
On this day, may you be totally in the drivers seat of your life! Somedays you just need to pull over so that they person behind you can get on their way. In doing this, you empower yourself to move forward on your path and to Try Easy...
