More Gas Pump Wisdom

#PetrolPumpWisdom, which are uplifting quotes written on a chalkboard.

The lady behind this wonderful initiative at Hutton Hyde Park is Alison BillettShe told  in Gauteng, South African  People: “We inherited the board from the previous owner, Dick Hutton, 
when we bought the filling station from him almost 20 years ago.

“We continued the tradition and it has become a landmark – more so now that it’s on social media!

“Not a day goes by when I don’t get a call or a visit from someone to tell me how much they appreciate the message –
it seems that every day there’s something that just speaks to what is going on in someone’s life and that inspires or motivates them.

Signs of Wisdom

People drive past this petrol station each day just to read what message they have written on their chalkboard.

A gas station has become quite a landmark in Gauteng, South Africa, with its daily #PetrolPumpWisdom, which are uplifting quotes written on a chalkboard. I will post one each day till I run out of them.

This is one of them

Rather Disturbing Don’t You Think

When I watched this I thought how so graphically true. Parts of it a little too graphic for me, but it does get the message across. I do get a little annoyed at so much, what I call ‘Greeny’ stuff coming across the net but this one really caught my eye and realized it is pretty close to the truth. We do have a lot to answer for and there will be consequences in one way or another.

Don’t break the elastic!

I just received this from a good friend of mine in Australia. I don’t know, you have probably seen it but I haven’t. Great words and not just meant for women either, cause guys have elastic in their undies too.
Enjoy because I did, made me think a little too.

Don’t break the elastic!

In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday. Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older.
And, there on television, she said it was ‘exciting…’
Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring every day…..like her breasts. They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist, first.
The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words!Maya Angelou said this:

  • ‘I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.’
  • ‘I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.’
  • ‘I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.’
  • ‘I’ve learned that making a ‘living’ is not the same thing as ‘making a life..’
  • ‘I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.’
  • ‘I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back…’
  • ‘I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.’
  • ‘I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.’
  • ‘I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back…’
  • ‘I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn…’
  • ‘I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.’
  • Please send this to five phenomenal women today… and back to me if you think I’m one also.
  • If you do, something good will happen:
  • You will boost another woman’s self-esteem
  • If you don’t….the elastic will break and your underpants will fall down around your ankles!
  • Believe me, I didn’t take any chances on MY elastic breaking…..I sent it to a lot of special women I care for…

Ok, I dont think your life will not come to an end if you don’t pass it on but, maybe a friend may need one of these messages today. I know I did

T-shirt Message for Texters

This sign is so poignant to what I have been trying to portray regarding Texting While Driving.

As I have said before I ride a motorcycle and have experienced many times the hazards of someone using a cell phone while driving. It is not only dangerous to you, as studies show that it blocks your peripheral vision, it is also proven to be the cause of many accidents that have ended in fatalities.

When I read this church sign I thought what a fantastic message. So fantastic that I have had it put on the back of t-shirts in the hope that it will save some lives.

I know when I wear it, motorists will see and read it as I pass them, or they pass me, or whenever they are are driving behind me.

Help support this effort… For every T-shirt sold I will donate $1 to Focus Driven

FocusDriven is an advocacy group for victims of motor vehicle crashes involving drivers using cell phones. They work with those who support their mission and want to make our roadways safer for all motorists.

These t-shirts come in different colors
