So much came to mind when I watched this video…I’ll leave the jokes for everyone else. All I got to say is, Big Momma better learn to wear that seat belt or the next time she’s going thru that windshield.
So often in life we text and drive. We pretend to be solely focused on the road and others around us while we are really dipping our chin just enough to stare down at our phones while we put ourselves and those around us in supreme danger.
I mean this in a metaphorical sense; so often we say we are doing something to our fullest when we know deep down inside we aren’t giving it 100%.’I’m on my grind, I’m hustling, I’m doing this, that and that, etc etc etc.’ But really what we are doing is just enough to deflect the attention from the core problem; I’m not the hardest working person I know. There are millions of people out there working harder than me. Those people have goals and dreams just like me, but they relentlessly pursue them. Me, I watch reality TV shows. Me, I watch the game instead of applying myself fully to my passion. Me, I sell myself, but I’m not there yet, we just don’t realize it, but we are all cruising through life, just texting and driving.
“Over 317,000 waiters and waitresses have college degrees (over 8,000 of them have doctoral or professional degrees), along with over 80,000 bartenders, and over 18,000 parking lot attendants. All told, some 17,000,000 Americans with college degrees are doing jobs that the BLS says require less than the skill levels associated with a bachelor’s degree (R. Vedder, The Chonicle, Oct. 20, 2010).”
Turn off the cell, lock in on your vision and don’t take your eyes off the road until you reach your desired destination. Enjoy the ride, the journey is what counts, but stop delaying your trip.
