Deep Thoughts…. but not with Jack Handy.

I do a lot of thinking when I drive. Thankfully, I live in an area where there is not much traffic. God help me when the day comes where this changes. Anyway, this tranquility on the road offers me the ability to think, to come up with new ideas, to create, etc. That said, here are a few thoughts I had today while driving around town running errands.

  1. If you are at a fast food establishment and can walk, don’t go through Drive Thru. Get out of your car and place your order inside that restaurant. Your limbs and body will thank you in the long run.
  2. Smile at random strangers. You never know, one of them might be having a bad day and your simple gesture could make all the difference.
  3. Turn up the volume on your radio and sing at the top of your lungs. Pretend you’re in a rock band. It’s fun, trust me.
  4. If you’re angry about something, ask yourself why. You might discover it all has to do with you.
  5. Don’t have expectations because you’ll always be disappointed.
  6. Find a new recipe and cook that meal. Go outside of your comfort zone. Cook something difficult or try food from another culture.
  7. Don’t judge someone for what they believe. Just like you, they think they’re right.
  8. Hug your loved one. It’s good for your blood pressure.
  9. Try an activity you’ve always wanted to, whether it’s tap dancing, Yoga, ballet. It’s your life and a little self-challenge is always good for the soul.
  10. Be happy with who you are. It’s okay if everyone doesn’t like you.
