Just Drive!

I'm quite patient these days, except when it comes to driving. I'm frustrated at how slow people are, how people just cannot keep to their lane & how everyone seems to always be on their phone while driving.

At times and over the years, I wanted to take things into my own hands.  One way I was thinking about taking things into my own hands was to have a collection of some signs/placards that I could flash up as I'm driving past. 

Some of the most needed signs I need are as follows:

1. Stay In Your Lane (Yes you in the Barina.  It's so small as it is, I don't know why its so hard for you)
2. Put Your Headlights On (Doing a public service, not really helping you)
3. Get Off the Phone (I don't really care what he/she said last night, you're going to kill someone)
4. Just Drive! (Stop being so conservative and hit the accelerator, it says 80!)

So if you see a sign being waved towards you on Sydney roads, chances are, it's probably me. So get on with it and just drive normally!

Ball in my Court

In relationships, (from the little I know) I realised that sometimes when the ball is in my court, the ball is not where I really want it & sometimes, if given the choice, I wouldn't have the ball in my court at all.

I just moved the ball from out of my court & I cannot tell you how much more peaceful & less stressed I feel. 

In the lead up to it, I was umm'ing & ahh'ing what should I do? Should I do it now? Do it later? ... Tomorrow?

Now that the ball is out of my court, I know that whatever the reaction is I'm going to be comfortable & at peace.

Maybe its a mixture of not procrastinating, making a decision or not having to worry about something 'to-do' as it's done.  Either way, a weight has been lifted, the ball has been returned & now I feel that I can move on.

Great Friday!

It's been a Great Good Friday.
It felt very peaceful walking & driving around today.  People were out and about, cycling, picnicking, strolling & laughing. Being outdoor was a MUST for today.

Is it something to do with the fact that the shops are closed? That most restaurants are closed? There is no scheduled team sports?  The crazy drivers aren't rushing around? (It's double demerits this weekend).

The Sydney people/tourists we crossed paths with were friendly, relaxed & it seemed that everyone was just revelling in the sun & carpe diem'ing.

It was nice not having any agenda, knowing that you have to also pick up eggs & milk from the shops & run some errands. Its not too often that you can relax, let your hair down & feel totally at ease in Sydney. 
Today was one of those days & I really relished every moment!
