What’s Your “Fog Line” Habit?

Friday, October 21st, 2011

As I was driving to Sea-Tac airport at 5 am yesterday morning, the stars were out and so were the animals. Two deer skittered across the highway in front of me, and as I rounded a corner I had to stop for a HUGE cow elk standing in my lane. She calmly looked me over as I waited, my Saturn Vue idling. Finally she turned away from my headlights shining in her face and sauntered off the highway.

Approaching the top of Chinook Pass, I could just make out a wall of white looming ahead, starting right at the log bridge that marks the eastern boundary of Mt. Rainier National Park. Sure enough, as I headed down the other side I was enveloped in fog so thick you could use it as whipped topping.

It reminded me so much of the very first time 29 years ago that I drove this winding stretch of highway between the summits of Chinook Pass and Cayuse Pass. It was even about the same time of night. Navigating its 3 hairpin curves and other twists and turns back then gave me a white-knuckled ride to remember.

Even with the experience of having driven this patch of mountain road over a hundred times I dreaded entering the white swirling mist. Until I found a delightful surprise: freshly painted, VISIBLE fog lines!

What could have been a trial (or worse, trial and ERROR) was so much easier for me because although it was still hard what was directly ahead of me, with the wide white lines to my right I could still make out the edge of the road levitra acheter. Instead of guessing, wishing or hoping, I could tell when I was getting too close to the shoulder.

Do you have any habits that work for you in the same way? Little things that help you stay on track because you can “see” that you’re too close to the edge of the road BEFORE you end up in the ditch?

I tend to lose track of time easily and getting out the door in time is a constant challenge for me. I set a kitchen timer to help me keep on track. My husband Charlie loves to take showers and he sets a timer so he doesn’t end up in there for half an hour and then late for work.

What is YOUR “fog line” habit? What little thing do you do that helps you stay on track?? What has helped you in the past?

Wag More, Bark Less

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

As I pulled into the parking lot of my local library yesterday to return a couple of books, I noticed the window sticker on the blue “Toaster” parked in the space right next to me. I call Honda Elements “Toasters” because to me they all look like overgrown kitchen appliances. They may look like they should have giant slots on the roof, but they do have fabulously flexible cargo space!

The oval sticker on the back window of the “Toaster” read, “Wag More, Bark Less”. Hmmm…as I walked across the parking lot with my books in hand, I kept thinking about that sticker.

It was succinct. And also very good advice.

One of my favorite relatives once told me, “Louise, there are two
kinds of people in this world. See that doorway over there? There are those who make you break out in a smile when you see them walking in the door, and those who you smile at when you see them walking out. WHICH ONE DO YOU WANT TO BE master collection cs6 mac viagraindian.com?”

It seems that “wagging more” and “barking less” would also be a way to remember another, very powerful observation, by Maya Angelou:

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel. ”

Think of the difference between how you feel when you see a dog wagging their tail madly at you, tongue hanging out in a doggy smile, compared to having that dog stare at you, barking furiously.

Which makes you feel better?

Seeing that window sticker also helped remind me to think about whether I was creating joy when I arrived to a gathering or when I left.

About whether I am “wagging” enough, or “barking” too much.

Wag More… Bark Less…and have a great day.

Warm Regards,

Congratulations, USA Women World Cup Soccer Team

Monday, July 11th, 2011

What a thrilling game yesterday! The USA Women’s victory in over Brazil was an amazing mix of ups, downs, good luck and bad…a tribute to their team’s dogged effort, persistence and passion http://levitrakamagra.com/.

When I think about the commitment and tenacity that the USA Women’s team displayed in their win over Brazil, it reminds me of a favorite quote of mine by Bob Moawad:

“You can’t make footprints in the sands of time if you’re sitting on your butt. And who wants to make buttprints in the the sands of time?”

Here’s to you, USA Women!
