As I was leaving the grocery store yesterday I found myself waiting for cars to go by before I pulled out into traffic. Each time I saw the lane open and it appeared to be safe to pull out a car from another lane would switch over to it.

 

But I was not deterred. I patiently waited, however, I can't same the same for the lady who was behind me. Instead of a short and polite beep of her horn she blasted it.

 

What was my response?

 

I didn't jump and floor it to appease her need at the expense of my own safety. I didn't spin around or jump out my car in anger. No, what I did was continued to patiently wait there until it was safe for me to go. You see, what I knew that she didn't is my car is due for a tune-up and is driving a little sluggish. If I would have pulled out into traffic at the blowing of her horn it could have been detrimental for myself and others.

 

Lesson: Don't be so inclined to jump at the whim or expectations of others. Know yourself and your situation so well that when it is time for you to pull out and get on the open highway you are in the driver's seat and not someone else.
