Hi MaxPower 2U nation! Today we want to discuss car accidents. Car accidents are common occurrences in our highways and streets, but how you react to it can and will decide your mood the rest of that day and possibly more.
The type of accidents we are referring to though are not serious ones that might possibly require medical attention, instead, we are referring to fender benders and and the like. Whether it be a dented hood or a broken bumper, accidents can happen to you. What will you do when it does happen?
The first thing you must remind yourself of is that no matter the material damage, the simple fact that you were not seriously hurt and that you still have life should be at the forefront of your mind. Nothing can replace life, no matter how luxurious or spacious a car can be. Material things come and go, but your life can never be given back to you.
We have all in the past been disappointed or upset, whether our fault or not, of having to go through the experience and inconvenience of an accident. Those feelings are to be expected in the moment in some of those experiences, but the important part is that you always bring it back to keeping in mind that you came out of the experience with your precious and wonderful life.
We are not saying that you must act like a robot and show no emotion about your experience. But you must understand that letting your feelings and emotions about the whole situation get a hold of you can and will only have a negative effect on your day, and possibly your week, if you aren't careful.
Any negative or ill will directed at the other person involved will only be reflected right back to you. When and if you direct negative feelings and emotions to the other person, you will only be filling yourself with that negative energy instead of getting rid of it.
Your main goal should be to stay calm and maintain perspective about the entire situation, not to attack or blame yourself or others to the point where you become disgruntled.
If you practice maintaining perspective that you aren't injured and more importantly are alive and well, your mood will react in turn. You will feel a sense of relief and appreciation.
However, if you refuse to view things from that perspective or simply don't remind yourself of what really matters, then you will surely fill your mind and body with negative energy that can and will effect your mood for the day and several others if your perspective of the situation does not change.
In life, most things are how you decide to look at them, and when it comes to accidents it's no different. So if you happen to be involved in one anytime soon, remember that you have control of the type of mood that will result of it. Will it be positive or negative? Only you can decide that.
With that said,
"Put a little MaxPower in your life!"
