We must be willing to take a deep breath, throw in a little self talk, and focus before we respond to situations, especially those that can be detrimental to our health and possibly even the life of those with whom we interact daily. I often wonder, man... how would that situation have turned out if I would've just waited to respond. IF I didn't react or respond so hastily, that could've turned out very differently.
The awesome thing about life and the newness of each day, is that when we open our eyes first thing in the morning, we are being given another opportunity to get it right. So gosh darn it... get out there and make the change, and get it right. First, ask yourself, "Where am I" and how will I present myself, my thoughts, and actions in this situation today. And maybe, just maybe... you'll find a bit of laughter in all of this too! If we can't laugh at ourselves as we grow... It's going to be a tough road.
