Our lives are busy! Every day we’re presented with a new challenge, if not numerous tasks. Each day we’re tested, how will we react, will our patience grow thin, will we embrace the experience or will we develop with the new challenge?
Not long ago as my two younger children and I were headed to an event, we encountered a not-so-kind male driver. As I gained on his slower moving vehicle in the passing lane, I settled in behind. As we slowly made our way past traffic in the outer driving lane without warning the driver in front slammed on his brakes and flew his right-hand middle finger in his rearview mirror. My vehicle was far enough away from his that his actions didn’t affect us; however, my children began to laugh hysterically at what the adult driving in front of us had done. Their laughter was contagious, and when we were finally able to drive by him, my children were glued to their windows laughing and waving. It was a sight to watch as the man in the SUV, who was ready to unleash his rage from behind the protection of his window, freeze when the two young faces smiled and waved as they passed.
How we react, how we treat others, and how we live our lives is a challenge itself. Sometimes it’s something you’ve read, a quote that makes you feel better, time with Him, or even a moment to yourself to focus and redefine your actions.
As I share experiences, I know I’m not alone. At times it feels as if I am, how I’m the only person this happens to. Everyone else seems to have their life together, no worries, how everything falls in place for others, but not me!
I’ve created Made Ya Think! A place to share life’s experiences, a place to help people for the better, a place where people go to feel inspired to make the most of each day.
I welcome comments and suggestions as my work will only grow and help others when I know what people are searching for!
All my best!
