I love my Mayberry.
I took a ride on I-4 the other day. It was 7:30 a.m. I had an appointment in Lake Mary at 8. I thought I might be late because of a traffic jam, so I started repeating my prosperity affirmations and did so most of the way.
I really don't know how people drive that drive every day. It must be stressful at times, but then I think it could just be automatic and mundane. Perhaps, people turn into zombies. I surely appreciated my Mayberry for those 30 minutes and wished to be there. The ride home was fine; it was just after 9 a.m.
Safely tucked away in my Mayberry now, I realize we all have a Mayberry, something that allows us to be, to be in the present. Look for that Mayberry and do your best to spend time there, perhaps, writing, meditating, walking -- whatever gives you peace.
I am normally mindful as to when I venture out of my Mayberry. It's because I feel the chaos of it all, even though I have learned to block it out. I do wonder at times what people are doing when driving. I send love and light and put protection around vehicles and their drivers.
Backstory: I was once that mad woman flipping people the bird when they cut me off. Cursing or having conversations with the air directed at the latest craziness of a driver does no good.
I flip people the peace sign now.
In addition to prosperity affirmations, I sometimes say, 'Sending out the white light followed by the pink fog of love to everywhere I go before I arrive.' Oh, I love that.
Sending healing white light to all of humanity!
