A road I travel regularly is in really poor condition with potholes and uneven surfaces and I complain about it (to myself or my passengers) frequently. It beats the heck out of my truck and cannot be good for the tires. Cha ching!
Today, I decided to live in the 'danger zone' (insert Kenny Loggins tune here). While travelling on this road, I changed lanes. Into the left (inside) lane. And there was no separation between me and the opposing direction. It was unnerving. And uncomfortable. AND I LIVED TO TELL ABOUT IT!
But you know what else? The left lane was much smoother than the right lane. There were fewer potholes and my truck...ahhh, my truck breathed a sigh of relief.
So here's what I learned today: Even though I was afraid to travel in the unfamiliar and sometimes scary lane, I did it successfully and my journey was so much smoother.
Hmmm...I wonder where else I can 'change lanes' in my life.
