A Change of Attitude

If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. Maya Angelou

For a lot of us the morning looks like this: Get up. Gulp down some coffee. Maybe a bit of breakfast. Rush to dress the kids, pour kibble into a bowl for the dog, and all before we face what is, for some of us, the most *“punishing” challenge of the day – the drive to work.

I am one of those people who likes to drive. On open stretches of road with zero traffic and lots of interesting scenery kind of driving. In town, on the freeway – not so much. Now, if everyone would behave, I would like it just fine but driving has become pretty tricky.

Studies show that a good portion of the driving public doesn’t even KNOW how to drive. Really doesn’t know. Couldn’t pass a driving test kind of doesn’t know! Argh! And, more and more, life’s considerable frustrations are acted out behind the wheel.

So, here’s the deal. We have to get to work and most of us must drive to get there. Decide to ease up on the angry driver attitude. Think of something more pleasant, give other frazzled drivers some slack, and just chill.

Try it out. A change in one person’s attitude might be contagious.

You might even say your sentence has been *“commuted.”

I know… I know…
