Be awakened

“This is your life on autopilot: half-awake, frustrated, disconnected from yourself and those around you. Of course you need and want to “be there” for your children, your spouse, and your co-workers, but your inner voice can’t help but cry out, “There has to be a better way!”

How do you get yourself off autopilot so you can really live? It all starts by shifting your focus. The key is to become aware of your feelings, habits, patterns, and general “busyness” so that you can learn to mindfully step outside yourself the moment you notice you’re engaging in your usual autopilot behavior.” Toni Parker, Ph.D.

Twas the day before Thanksgiving, and all through the land
People were scurrying - things got out of hand

When the customer told them to hurry because he had to poo
That customer was me, yes this is true
For the day before Thanksgiving HEB almost got a gift they could not return
