This morning, I drove like a selfish jerk. A bus wanted to switch to my lane but I zoomed past it instead.

Shortly after, I did it again!

What’s wrong with me?!

After my kids alighted to go to school, I asked myself:

How can I self-reflect on this with gentleness?

My heart instantly softened. I saw myself as a weak driver and those two moments felt like the perfect opportunities for me to zoom past and arrive at my kids’ school earlier.

What would my inner landscape look like for me to instinctively do the right thing?
