Slow Down and Be Prepared

Leave a comment

This sounds kind of like a Boy Scout slogan, doesn’t it?

I say slow down because so many auto accidents have happened because someone was jumping the gun – like turning off the car when it’s still in drive, or backing out of a parking lot space without looking to the right or the left.  (These are the people who say that the other car “came out of nowhere”.)

If you slow down, you can arrive at work a little ahead of schedule and then your day doesn’t  have to start out with you already being behind.  That’s called being prepared.

Pros of being prepared:   your blood pressure doesn’t rise because of something you could have prevented; you don’t get short of breath; you may not need to relax very long after work tonight.

Cons of being prepared:  if you’re a drama queen or king, then being prepared would be a con.   Being prepared makes you look so efficient to others that soon people are clamoring for your attention and help. 

Just kidding, I don’t think there are any cons to being prepared.  Well, maybe for the people who like things to go in a certain way and that doesn’t happen…

Be prepared for Yours Truly to never get tired of writing.  🙂

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, http://www.innersunshine.net launched. Thank you for visiting!
