Everyone Has An Opinion

1) I better write fast because my system is on and off again, I think that I re-booted 3 or 4 times just to read blogs and catch up on email.

2) I was going approx the speed limit yesterday, got tailgated mercilessly by a young woman who passed me as soon as we got to a broken yellow line. Within seconds a gentleman driving towards me all but hung out of his window urging me to slow down, slow down & blinking his lights off and on. Yes, there was a cop ahead and no he did not pull the woman over because he was pulled into someone's driveway.

I laughed because I've never had such opposing opinions on how fast I should drive when I was just driving the speed limit.

3) I was affected by what I heard yesterday on one of the Healing Your Spirit radio shows. She remarked that in a personal relationship sometimes one loses one's compassion for the other. I thought that was so beautifully, elegantly put.

With that in mind, I am thinking about writing an amends, putting it away for a couple days and then possibly sending it to someone who I haven't spoken to in 2 years. I need help in letting it go and this may help me.

What's good about today is that the world is abundant for those with open hearts and minds.


  1. I think if I lose compassion for a close friend, there can be some very serious consequences (as to the health of that relationship).

  2. "Open hearts and minds"...yes, isn't that so. Is that not the point? That we become willing to grow along spiritual lines?


  3. Great post, Carol...the world is indeed abundant, and we are blessed to be here.

    I had the same kind of experience this evening on a country road...the young woman in the ginormous SUV rode my butt for about 4 miles and then peeled out and went around me, almost hitting a deer about 1/4 mile further up the road. She slammed on her brakes and luckily there was no one coming form the other direction...she would have been toast.
    I'm glad I'm

  4. Funny to be suspected of wrong doing when we are just minding our own business. Sounds like you just chuckled...which is a good thing.

  5. I have not gotten by here on a regular basis, but just wanted to tell you that your blog is very soothing.
