Today, I drove down the beautiful mountain. Then I got on the 10, and then I got on the 60. I hit massive traffic and finally made it to there 91. From there, it cleared up for about 30 minutes, and then I was in bumper to bumper five miles per hour traffic jam for 45 minutes, then it cleared up, and then I finally made it to my destination. 2 hours and 45 minutes altogether.
I sat in court for 30 minutes. (I am a lawyer as well as a writer)
Then I got back in my car and made my trek back.
Normally, I stress about traffic.
It drives me totally out of my mind insane. But today, my stress level was next to nothing, all because I was repeating an affirmation and command of the heart, over and over, thousands of times. It really kept my mind focused and busy, so I didn’t have time to stress about the slow drivers and the semi’s and all the rest.
I am super grateful for this.
All that time in the car I dedicate to improving my mind.
Then it doesn’t matter if people cut me off, drive to slow, too fast, or do anything else that stresses me out.
When I am focused on my affirmations, I just flow with the traffic.
