Stress free in Northern Virginia (5/27/2014)
This week I am in northern Virginia or what they call NOVA. The trip up north was interesting as always. The roads were crowded, and of course there was an accident on I-95. So here I was sitting in a backup thinking about the radio show I heard this morning. In an interview with Dr. Amit Sood about living without stress he spoke about being in a traffic jam and thinking of people you are thankful of, for being in your life. I really think that would help a lot; why even bother yourself with people who are potentially toxic to you? At work you already have to deal with people you cannot choose, so in your private life, concentrate on those people who contribute to your well being; be thankful for them and concentrate on what it is about them that makes you happy. Quit obsessing about those people that bother you. Life is too short!
Well, in the traffic jam I was able to take this (horrible) picture by sticking my phone out of the window and shoot this image of the traffic jam, so symbolic of all the crap and toxicity that can jam up a person's mind. To me this was particularly important, after a weekend of murders, such as the guy in Santa Barbara, California who had his mind poisoned by his inability to attract women. As a father of a daughter and a husband I am very disturbed about the increased violence against women, but also of any other hate crime.
