Happy Saturday morning to you all! I hope if you’re in Brisbane you’re keeping safe in this rain! It’s slippery on the roads. Actually, I know this for a fact because I had a little incident today that could have been far worse. I’m actually going to use that as analogy today also ;) Because I’m all philosophical, and deep & meaningful of course.
Haha, a funny to start your day- and some eye candy for the fellas!
Today as I was going around a corner in a rush I was possibly (definitely) going too fast and the car spun out. I crossed over lanes to where oncoming traffic would be and I nearly hit the gutter and a fence. I was very fortunate that I somehow (no idea!) managed to get the car under control. I pushed my foot down on the clutch and eased onto the brake whilst trying to straighten up the wheel. I am pretty proud of how I handled it all- under pressure like that! Once I managed to get back onto the side of the road, I popped on the handbrake and just took some deep breaths. I was pretty shocked. I could hear my heart beating in my ears, my adrenalin was pumping, my body shaking and tears started to well up in my eyes. Luckily, my boyfriend was following me and pulled over also only to come and comfort me briefly. I am also SUPER lucky that there were no cars on the other side of the road. Who knows what could have happened if cars were to be driving on that road at the time, I’m just lucky that I’m safe and all I was left with was a case of the shakes.
So that analogy I was talking about? Well, I thought it could perhaps signify how I race through life too quickly, missing the little incidental things- perhaps the things that would keep me safe and prevent me from ‘spinning out’. See what I did there? I’ve posted about how important it is to cherish your time but I guess it was just life’s little reminder for me to slow down and enjoy life a bit? You never know when life could throw you a curve ball and change things- things you may never be able to experience or get back again.
I thought I’d write a little list of ‘small things in life’ that I want to try and remember more often. Anyways, it’s the small things that make the biggest differences right?
- Take in the world’s natural beauty.
- Savour the chats, hugs and time with friends and family.
- Make time to smile, hug, laugh and kiss.
- Don’t waste time with negativity. Rid my life of the self doubt, self criticism and self judgement.
- Live in the now before moving on to the future.
Wow, this ‘small things’ are actually HUGE things. But in order to get them happening they only really take small changes and adjustments. I’m all for changing it up slightly to get big differences.
Hope you continue to remain safe today and I’ll catch ya on the flip side this arvo!
