Dreadlocks

A male friend of mine loves to try all different kinds of hair styles. Of course only the kind of hair styles he likes. He is the kind of person that does not care about what others think of him. So he decided to get dreadlocks.

He told me how he went to work and all people were massively shocked. His co workers hardly knew what to say. After he had the hairstyle for three months he decided to shave his head. Again his co workers were speechless.

This story of dreadlocks made me think about life. I realised that my friend has the guts the live life on his own terms. He creates his own experiences and lives life according to what he enjoys. Therefore make sure to make the most of every day. There is nothing more sad than to have missed out on something you wanted to do. Life is precious and you are ultimately in control!

Are You the Driver of Your Car?

Were you the driver of your car today? Were you present when shifting gears or breaking at the lights? Did you consciously choose which route you were going to take and did you choose to check the mirror to look out for any drivers?

Most of us are on auto pilot when it comes to our lives. We always have a choice whether we want to go straight, turn left or perhaps turn right. We are the authors of our lives and we are the ones that can be in the driver seat if we choose to. The question is are you willing to get into the driver seat and choose your destination or are you going to give your keys away?
