I was off to a dr. appointment and running a bit behind schedule, I was catching all the yellow lights. I thought to myself, I am having a yellow almost red light kind of day. It was as if the whole world was urging me to slow down.

How easy it is on a yellow almost red light kind of day to project everything on an excuse. Excuses, excuses, excuses…if my dog hadn’t been digging in the mud and brought it all in the house and I had to clean up, I wouldn’t be behind…If that dear, sweet friend of mine who always seems to call at the wrong time hadn’t called right as I was leaving, I wouldn’t have been in a rush…if my teen didn’t decide just at that moment that it was time for a serious talk, there would have been all the time I needed.

Yellow almost red light kind of mornings tend to continue on as yellow almost red light kind of days. Again as if the world is teaching its wisdom. When we project our tardiness on others, aren’t we blaming them? Why not just admit…yes, I am having a yellow almost red light kind of day…period. Nobody’s fault per se…it just is what it is…so why run ragged trying to turn the yellow almost red light kind of day into a smooth sailing yield to traffic kind of day?

Accept the yellow almost red light kind of day for what it is. Slow down.

because CAUTION…

the wonder of the present moment is passing you by!
