I am a few days behind in this postdaily2011 *sad face*
Anyways to hop back on board, I came to a realization today. When someone cherish the life you live. I thought about driving.
I get anxious at times about drivingthe 20 or so miles to my work in Sacramento. I have to think about the not-so-aware drivers, the truckers, the people who don’t signal… all that junk. I realized I worry more about other people’s driving than my own! and as a response I drive defensively. The thing I noticed with other people is that they just DRIVE. Drive as though the only objective is to get to point a to point b. But unfortunately they are missing all the small things.
When you drive you double check everything before you start right? Lights on, engine on, no weird noises, if it’s foggy put on the headlights, mirrors at the right angles…
But have you ever thought you should get better at driving while youre driving? To me driving everyday is a test. My way of getting expert at my daily routine, perhaps taking a different once in awhile to see if I can pass that test. There are varying x factors that affect the drive. This is probably why people get road rage.
Not to point anyone out but bad habits in driving are not very wise. For example, relying on cruise control, texting/calling, eating, anything distracting is setting yourself up for failure. And just because nothing bad has happened yet, it could and perhaps it will. Brushing off close calls is ignoring a lack of competency and maybe judgment.
If you could do these things and work on your driving techniques then hallelujah.
Somehow I lose the punch in my posts, but I will come back and edit this later.
