Good mood, bad mood – why we should try to leave the blues behind

blank

Here’s something you might want to think about for a minute or two — if it’s safe to do so, of course.

In cold retrospect, I have to say that I’m starting to notice that the mood I’m in when I leave the base affects the way I drive.

Not in the big, accident-prone street hype or something, but in small things.

I’ve just been reflecting on how I’ve been behaving behind the wheel for the past few days and I can say with some certainty: If for any reason, be it a minor issue or a major one, I’ve been under the weather – and who is not sometimes – I was less polite on the road.

By that I mean I would have been less likely to let someone out of a gate or entrance.

I would have cried a bit if someone hadn’t pulled off fast enough to keep the lights from flashing at me.

I was only touchy about little things. Usually I would sit up and try to keep a straight keel.

When I was in good shape it was a different picture overall. I let people out of the side street in front of me. And if I had to wait for another traffic light to turn green, so what?

If someone threw their lights at me to let them pass or complained that I was driving too slowly, I didn’t get upset, I just pulled in to accommodate them if I could.

I forgot my behavior for a minute and observed, as I recall, quite a bit of good humor driving, but also quite a lot of bad driving.

From now on I decide to leave the bad mood trapped behind the door before I go.

Does any of this sound familiar to you? Maybe it’s worth thinking about a little.
