The Repercussions From Not Being Mindful

Sunday Morning Adventure with Peggy and Dave!

Today's discussion about being mindful reveals some of the consequences of not being in "the present"


Good morning, Peggy and I on our Sunday morning adventure, and she was wondering how I record these. 

So I thought I'd show her. 

We have an app on our phone, and it's a recording app and I hold my phone up. I kind of bend my elbow hold my phone up, but I don't look at it. I don't break the law if I don't have to. So we just cruise down the road. Right now we're on our Sunday morning adventure. It's a great tip because you get out and you it's like a meditation. It's a moving meditation. There we go. And it's just getting away from everything. There's something about driving for me that is absolutely... is cathartic the right word peg?

It's really safe. 

It's really safe. Yeah, allows

you to ponder. I mean, we've done some of our best pondering on the road and you've gotten your only two tickets.

Yeah, boy, that's for sure. It's amazing. The only two speeding tickets I've ever received in my life. 

First one was between Kingman Arizona and Las Vegas. 

Peggy was a CPA at the time had her own accounting practice. It was it was April 16. The tax rush was over. We were on the road and more on that there's like, what is there like 20 miles, just straight road, once you turn right at Kingman to go to Vegas?

I'm going down the road and Peggy says did you see that policeman in the center?  

I said no. I look up and here he comes. I looked down at my speedometer. And that car, the speedometer shows up to 90 miles an hour, and it was pegged. 

We had been discussing... we had a business at that time called the American business development group where we were helping other businesses learn how to do streetwise marketing, and the speedometer was pegged. 

So I guess if anything this this lesson this morning, this discussion is going to be about mindfulness peg, because obviously, I wasn't aware of where I was, and what I was doing. 

And the second ticket, just for a quickie was, oh my god between Nasalle and Long Beach. 

We understand that guy used to camp out there. They say he was the highest highest income earner for the state of anybody and he just wrote tickets all day long. 

That doesn't sound like fun to me. 

Mindfulness is always being aware of where you are, what you're doing, and how the day's going and what and, you know, like your speed limit, making sure you're not going 90 Miles... 90 Plus...

That cop said he clocked me at 105, he clocked me at 105.  

That old car what was that? That was our century, our Buick Century. 

I didn't know that car would do. 105. 

I think this is almost a game they play. He wrote me up for like 85 because that was the cheapest ticket. And oh, that's another story that I'll save for another time. Traffic School in Arizona... I should look up this guy's name. 

If you ever get a ticket in Arizona, it was a four hour stand up routine by this guy.  I'm not going to get into that right now. That's not today's message. 

But it will be a worthy message at some point about somebody who is delusional. And I'll just leave it at that. Because this lady was definitely delusional wasn't me. Oh, no, no, no. And he had a great time with her. And I will tell you more about that another day. 

So Miss peg, what do you think for a Sunday morning? Any words of wisdom for everybody?

Well, my words of wisdom is I'm glad I'm not on the bridge. Because it's the bridge walk this morning. The Astria walk Yeah, from from one side of the Columbia to the other. And I don't like being soggy. So I'm glad that I have a nice warm, hot cup of coffee in my hands. And in a nice, warm, comfy car. And we're driving this gorgeous Peninsula.

Yeah, right. Looking at the Bay right now. It's absolutely gorgeous. Actually, now we're going by the Baron's field. Yes. But yeah, so I hope I hope for the people on the bridge that it's absolutely beautiful here, right. Beautiful, right this minute. Although it's been it's been a downpour a couple times during our drive. I just hope for the bridge. I mean, the first year we did that bridge walk oh my god. You know, if you've never done this, you have to do it at least once. Because that's the only time you get to walk across the Astoria Meglar bridge. 

We were so lucky. Our very first year we went we thought we were in a Disney movie. We were all bunched up by Oh, what's the name, Dismal Niche? And we're all bunched up there. We start walking. Beautiful morning. 

Oh my god. It was in October morning. It was probably 65-70 degrees. Sun out, not a cloud in the sky. Just cruising along. As we start walking, here comes an eagle. And this guy flew about 10 to 15 feet over the entire crowd.

Did it fly by...

We really thought it was a Disney Amnatron. 

The timing was right when they started the race. And the timing was so perfectly it was like it was like, you know, in a football game when the jets fly over. It was amazing. And then the walk was just amazing. Everything was amazing. I was like, oh my god, we do live in paradise. 

It turns out we do live in paradise. But the first second week of October is not always the best weather. So yw went on that for about five years, loved it, loved it, loved it. 

 On year six, it was raining sideways, the wind was blowing 40 miles an hour. We looked at everybody getting on the buses, and we got our T shirts and went to a place called Tide Point and had pancakes. And so yeah, so that's it, and what was our message of the day Peggy? 

cash, mindfulness, mindfulness. 

So coming back to that one more time. There's lots of reasons to be mindful. And maybe being mindful in the case of that, I believe that was 2006. Somewhere in there, being mindful of what our bodies wanted to do and what was really enjoyable. So we went to breakfast instead. And it wasn't it was funny because the place was packed with people wearing their bridge walk T-shirts. So anyways, we're having an amazing Sunday morning. I hope you have an equally amazing Sunday. Anything else Miss peg?

I'm good. 

Move Well, 

Stay healthy. 

Be happy

live your life with passion 

and we will talk to you very soon. 

Bye bye
