Drunk Drivers

My heartfelt condolences to anyone who has ever been affected by the irresponsible acts of a drunken driver.  As you’ll see later, all of us have been or have been affected by these careless acts of destruction.  This post looks to address the of the influence of ‘spirits’ or feelings on our everyday lives.

Here’s one definition of the word drunk – overcome or dominated by a strong feeling or emotion.  Hmm… anyone not fall into this category?  It seems that  we all struggle daily with our feelings and emotions and the decisions that we make based on them.  If you think about it, where you are in life now is based on the decisions that were made according to how you felt at the time.  The funny thing is that we continue to do this even if not being totally satisfied with our previous results.

It’s hard to conceive the idea that we live in the past, present and the future at the same time.  This is due to our perception of time.  For example, by the time you can say the word present, it’s already in the past.  The thought of saying the word is projected into the future ; the process of saying it is your present.  Now why is this important?  Because when you understand this concept, you will then be able to ‘control’ your future by simply extending the mental present into the physical future.  In other words you’ll become proactive in your life as opposed to reactive to your feelings and emotions.

Networks are making a fortune capitalizing off of these ‘drunk drivers’ under the guise of ‘Reality TV’ and they are none the wiser.  All they know is that trick better stop talking smack before she gets smacked!  I can see in real time the effects this behavior has on our communities; just read some of the posts on FB…smh

Your body is your vehicle and you know by now that your emotions are the alcohol.  Please take control of your car and manage your alcohol intake on all levels!

  1. This is a very clever description as we all are guilty from time to time of being drunk drivers… awareness is the first step to sobriety…

  2. I truly agree with with this analogy. And it has opened up an awareness within myself. As we are all truly guilty of being drunk in our own mess on a daily basis. It has certainly helped me to realise how foolishly we think “this will never happen to me” when it has been happening probably most of our lives. Thanks for this post, please keep posting!
