Red Light, Green Light

Red light, Green light
Stress can take a toll on one’s mental, physical and financial health.  Finding the child in you can relieve stressful moments. Do you remember the childhood game, “Red light, Green light?”  Oh, the innocence of child’s play.  With child like behavior, they go full speed ahead, not fearing anything. They throw caution to the wind and just delight in the art of having fun. What happen to those boys and girls?  Have they become adults with high blood pressure, diabetes, substance abusers, obese couch potatoes, etc.?
As we close out Black History Month, it’s fitting to pay homage to Garrett Morgan, the inventor of the traffic light.  Without the traffic light, life would be very chaotic. Motorist would run into each other, experience head on collisions, become more intolerant of other motorists and express road rage. So slow down, take a deep breath and find the child in you again.
Red Light~ Stop stressing about what you don’t have.  Stop blaming others for your short comings. Stop destructive behavior.  You know the behavior because your family and support people have told you.  Stop doing nothing!
Yellow Light~ Proceed with Caution, you are almost at the cliff.  Back up quickly and turn around. It is at this stage, you can make significant change.  Slow down, look around you, assess any damages, and make decisions by programming your GPS to take a different course.
Green Light~ Take care of you. Exercise, find your purpose and focus on your goals.  Use your cruise control to buy yourself time to make decisions that will impact your life.  You might opt to join a health club, take Yoga, take some classes to change career if your current career is the source of stress. If you are drowning in debt, there is help.  Consult with a credit counselor. Take advantage of government programs to reduce your mortgage payments, or refinancing options.  The main thing is to take action to change that behaviors that’s causing you discomfort and stress.  As you get off that couch, do some jumping jacks, run out side to enjoy your day.  Fly a kite and like a child, throw caution to the wind.

This will be the appropriate blog for anybody who wants to be made aware of this topic. You are aware of much its practically challenging to argue with you (not that I really would want…HaHa). You certainly put a different spin on the topic thats been discussed for many years. Wonderful stuff, just excellent!

An essay can have many purposes, but the basic structure is the same no matter what. You may be writing an essay to argue for a particular point of view or to explain the steps necessary to complete a task.

When they through caution on the wind, they give a new swing to the mind as well because this helps them to enter a new dynamic of their minds and watch and learn new things in a new way to understand .

The red light and green light symbolizes the signs of stop and go in terms of the traffic lights. I read the blog, this is kinda good because of the red light used for the bad habits that a person has and needs to stop it. On the other hand, the green light symbolizes the good habits that must be projected through actions not the only words. The action gives life to whatever readings that we are adapted to.
