6.) When driving, instead of feeling irritated with the other drivers focus on what they may be suffering from: loss of a loved one, poor health, family problems, financial hardship, etc. and send positive thoughts to them.
Oh, how many times do we yell and shout at people on the road? I know I have had my share of times but recently I am consciously not engaging in that behavior anymore. I experienced a paradigm shift: I just received a call that my mom died and I had my father in the car with me, her husband of 64 years, and I had just given him the news. We were stopped at a red light and my father was wailing and flailing his arms, I reached over to hold him, to calm him, and the light turned green. The cars behind me began to honk and looking in the rearview mirror someone shot me the bird for not moving when the light turned. I wondered if they knew what happened would they have reacted the same way?
