Capturing Some Thoughts From My Random Thought Generator
In My Head
August 25, 2021
Feels strange to say that my month-long drive across the country has left me tired. I guess I had gotten used to days in between “long” drives.
It also seems strange to say that there’s a lot of traffic in West Virginia. I have gotten used to deserted roads.
Speaking of roads, I am so happy I decided to drive “blue highways.” I have seen so much real America. I’m grateful to have the time to wander.
I am also grateful for the opportunity to see so many places and meet many people from around the country. I had been caught up in my own world. I hope I can maintain this broader perspective.
I am disappointed I haven’t lost those 20 pounds, built up to 50 push-ups, read more books. I work on not beating myself up but there’s a lot to work on. Oh, and gotten my flexible.
And I still use the word “but.”
Frustrated I don’t make more of a difference. I try to remember that each day is a new opportunity.
I try to remember each day how lucky I am. Especially for my friends and kids.
Indiana is a strange place to me. It is like vanilla ice cream - ok but nothing stands out.
That drive as you leave Lexington toward Louisville is one of the prettiest I have seen.
I think I got used to cooler weather. The heat feels good initially but then it just overpowers me.
I hope I’ve become a better person.
