The Beauty that is Self Control

4 Aug

So. . .I was out of town and out of the land of regular high speed internet access for about a week and a half and thus unable to update.

Sorry.

Today was voting day and I have one observation regarding this, and perhaps we can all use it to better ourselves.

Stay in control of your frustration at all times.  When it comes to dealing with people, react slowly.  Think.  Breathe.

A year or so ago I had an encounter with a nameless politician.  It was less than pleasant.  There was yelling, there were threats.  Supervisors were called.  By the end of it, I only knew one thing: I would never vote for this particular person.

Today, when I went to vote, this particular politicians name was on the ballot.  I theoretically agree with his politics, but all I could think of was his character.  I definitely voted for the other candidate, whom I have never met.

The lesson here is about stability and remaining constant at every moment.  I don’t know whether this guy is going to get elected, but the fact is that when he thought no one was watching he behaved terribly.

You don’t know who is watching you.

You don’t know when they are watching.

Just be kind.
