We have all been on the way to or from work, an event, or activity when BAM! We grind to a stop because of a traffic jam. Often choice words come to mind, and are sometimes muttered aloud as we alternate between glancing at the clock, moving as far to the side as possible to see what’s ahead, and making calls to advise of our tardiness.
The next time you are stuck in traffic I challenge you to view it from a different perspective than one which frustrates you due to being inconvenienced. While you are stopped take the time to consider the person(s) who may be injured – possibly fatally. Maybe be thankful you have transportation, are healthy enough to drive, and are IN a traffic jam and not the CAUSE of it. Maybe say words like Help them; Bless their loved ones; Thank you for protecting me. Let the traffic jam be on the road, not in your heart.
