Pat Starnes' Snippets

Don't Let 10 Seconds Ruin Your Day

Twice in as many days, I've had to slam on the brakes to avoid thoughtless, careless drivers. The first day, my cell phone, file folder, and stack of bills slid onto the floorboard as I dodged driver number ONE, who decided to cross oncoming traffic without yielding. 

Because I read an uplifting Facebook post (compliments of Joshua Feuerstein) the night before about not letting something minor ruin my day, I shook it off and went about my "Lady Gestures Confusion With Hands"merry way. #shakeitoff

A similar instance occurred today when driver number TWO crossed my path when clearly I had the right of way. This driver got the "arms tossed in the air, WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?" look. Still I made an effort to shake it off and not let it get me down. 

I'm sharing the 30 second video and hope it helps you remain calm and shake off the negative vibe. Don't let someone's careless, rude, inconsiderate action or comment ruin your day!
