Our lives are incredibly busy today trying to juggle work, family and household chores. The clock seemed to tick at a much slower pace years ago. There was more time with family and the chores always got done. We live in a much faster-paced world today, the clock doesn’t stand still and every minute flies by.
It’s 6 a.m. as the alarm goes off, you hit the snooze button three times before sliding out of bed. The race is on! Time to hurry up and get ready for work. Gotta go, gotta go!! Jump in the car and start your commute. Work’s now over and it’s time to run the kids to dance class and football practice. Dinner? Have to squeeze in dinner. What’s the healthiest option at the nearest fast food drive thru? Sorry Grandma, can’t make it over tonight!
Often we tend to drive the way we live our lives, at a very fast pace. The posted speed limit is 65 mph but we are driving 80 mph or more to get to our destination. Stop sign? What stop sign? Make sure to ignore that text as your cell phone is going off next to you. Sometimes the rules of the road don’t always fit into our life style but they are there to keep us and others safe. Take a moment to slow down, make a complete stop at the stop sign and use the hands free if the call is that urgent. We’re always in a rush to get to the next thing on our already overloaded schedules. Just keep in mind when you’re out on the road that you’re not the only one out there, and be careful so that all of us can stay safe. Gotta go!
