2. If you Feel Different, You Drive Different impaired driving campaign

Hopefully you have noticed the signs around the county and were aware of the DUI Prevention Walk on Aug. 24th.  ODOT, Sherman County Prevention and Sherman County Sherriff’s Office have joined together to promote the reduction and elimination of alcohol and drug impaired driving in Sherman County.  The “If you Feel Different, You Drive Different” is a national campaign through the U.S. Department of Transportation.

There are 91 yard signs in support of the campaign displayed around the county.  There are still 9 yard signs available at the Prevention Office at the Court House if you would like to put one up.  The campaign will be in effect until September 16 when signs will be picked up by Amy Asher.  If you need or want to drop your sign off at the Prevention Office before that, please feel free.

8. Shifting Your Perspective

Do you ever wish you could predict your future? Now, we are not talking about using tea leaves or cards, or calling a toll-free number and talking to someone claiming to be a psychic. What we are talking about is much more accurate and reliable.

If you want to know what your future is going to be like, do not waste your time looking into a crystal ball. Instead, take a look at your present thoughts. You see, your present thoughts determine your future. What you are thinking about today is going to show up in a future tomorrow.

And, if you want to see your belief system, which is just a collection of thoughts you accept as true, take a look at your life. Your life is your beliefs, made into reality.

For instance, if you believe there is never enough, that life is a struggle, that you have to fight for what you get, then you will never have enough. You will struggle and fight your way through life. You wind up exhausted at the end of every day.

If you believe there is no limit to what you can do, and adversity just makes you stronger, then your life will be one of achievement and resiliency. Understand that what you see in life depends mainly on what you look for. This means that everything you see, everything you do, everything you hear and think and wonder about is filtered through your belief system.

So, if you want to shape your future into a happy, productive, fulfilling time, eliminate negative thoughts about what you don’t want, in favor of positive ones about what you do want. It’s all about shifting your perspective – that single most important variable in any task, mission, or philosophy – and watching the effect ripple out into everything you do. ~The Pacific Institute
