TIP: When driving and a very strong wind is hitting you car or you are stuck between 2 huge semi's just slightly roll down 2 windows in your car that are opposite each other (so the back 2 or the front 2).
This tip came in handy almost every time I drove along the coast. So back to my experience today. I was just driving along and it started to snow in Flagstaff really fast and really hard. At one point my car was literally blown from one car lane into the other car lane.....and then I remember the window tip. I rolled down (just a bit) the back 2 windows and didn't have trouble the rest of the way home.
This experience got me thinking (well what else do you do on a 10 hour drive by yourself) about me and my pride (maybe you can relate). It was such a simple thought but really applicable to my life. I was thinking about how many times I have put up doors, walls, barriers to my heart and spirit and my pride has kept me boxed up--sealed tight. As the world started to beat on me and winds started to pick up I was such an easy target to hit and move. How simple and easy it is to just let down my guard a bit--roll down the window ever so slightly--and let in some light, love, guidance, etc. It's truly amazing how that one little gesture can help gain so much balance and safety.
