Do you ever feel so overwhelmed that you notice things but they go to the back of your mind to fix later? One day when I was driving to work, I was particularly rushed and little stressed out. I kept looking in my rear-view mirror and putting in the back of my mind that I needed to fix that. My husband had driven my car the night before and the mirrors all needed adjusted. But I was just too stressed and overwhelmed- "I will do it later!" Later that evening on my way home, I was more relaxed and calm as I headed to see my family. I looked in the mirror and immediately saw how messed up it was and fixed it. I couldn't believe the difference that made in my driving. I laughed at myself as I thought about that literally taking me probably 1.2 seconds! Wow- that's how stressed I was this morning, I thought.
I think a lot of us live this way. We are stressed, we are overwhelmed- just getting thru the morning or entire day. We are too busy to adjust things to make things better. Many people don't want to take the time to look in their own"rear-view mirror" to see how their past is effecting their present. It is just too much. But if we take a little time to do this and see how it effects us, our journey is so much better. The road is easier to navigate and we have a much better idea of how to get to where we are going. We don't need to dwell on the past but look at it to learn.
Do your mirrors need adjusting??
