Thought of the day...

I was driving home from work (funny-it's in the exact same location as the place I will start school tomorrow! ;)) today, and as I can get off the beltway at a few points and still get home, I was keeping an eye on the traffic. And I got to thinking-It's all smooth here, this lane is great, I'll just wait till the last exit and get off there.
But wait! I didn't need to get off the last exit, I needed to get off at MY exit! Soo...lesson on complacency-even though things may be comfortable and changing takes effort and can be frustrating, there's no point in staying where you are-you'll just miss your exit and have to turn around...which takes a whole lot more work...

Did you seriously drive past (all) your exit(s)? Or just holding out for the last one and missed it?

I didn't actually pass it...I was just thinking about passing it because the driving was so mesmerizing (excuse my spelling, I can't live up to Stx ;) and there were cars in the next lanes...I didn't feel like moving over.

Flairrah-all you need to do to track a blog is click on my name (TRW), it'll take you to my profile, then click on the link to my blog there! Who helped you find me..?

An update on my thoughts driving home (and there seem to be a lot, now that school's started again..)
Sometimes your exit comes sooner than you expect it...it's not always so hard...which should help for the times when there's traffic!
(I know, I just can't stop waxing eloquint)
