Red to Green

I recently read that the average person will spend two weeks of their lifetime waiting for the traffic light to change.

This got me thinking about the things we could be doing while wasting two weeks of our precious time here on earth waiting to go from red to green.

How about waving hello to the person waiting in the car beside you? Roll down your window and actually say hello. Hey, love comes from the most unexpected places.

How about waving hello to the old couple walking across the street trying desperately to get to the other side before the light changes? It’ll put a smile on their face.

How about turning off the blue tooth and the music and listening to the silence in the car, and relishing your time alone? And if silence is too scary...

How about singing along with the radio full voice? It might be contagious and the person in the car beside you might even join in. Sing out! Sing out loud!

How about saying a silent prayer thanking the Universe for all the good things going on in your life?

And if you’re feeling a little edgy, a little sinister...

How about putting your car in neutral and when someone is crossing the street in front of you revving the engine and scaring them shitless? It’s cruel but fun, and before you know it the light’s green.

How about taking a quick nap, and not waking up until the light turns green and the car behind you blares its horn for you to move? For added fun you can stay put until the light turns yellow and then speeding away leaving the car behind you stuck at another red light.

I can’t wait for my next red light.
