I kinda suck at driving.
No secret to anyone who has ever braved being my passenger.
I've been in a lot of little accidents (plus two big ones). I added to
that ridiculous number last week with a tiny fender bender.
The two gentlemen driving these cars were called to the scene.
One of them wrote a report and the other wrote me a ticket. :(
The rate at which I've gotten tickets in the last year -- between
parking, speeding and this -- is really quite astounding.
So, I'm working on slowing down ... living in the moment ... not
rushing ... doing one thing at a time ... focusing ... breathing ...
And to help the cause, I decided to get a bluetooth handsfree
devise. Talking on my cell phone while driving is just an
additional distraction that, for me, makes bad driving worse.
It's been a common denomenator in many of my tickets and
accidents. Since completely eliminating the phone while on
the road doesn't seem like a very viable option...
Of course, it's another thing to charge and remember to bring
with me when I leave the house. So, we'll see how it goes. I'm
gonna give it a whirl though.
I just feel discouraged. I've been making a proactive attempt to
get it together. There's this quote that says, "Life isn't about
finding yourself. It's about creating yourself." I'm trying. I am.
That's what my three monthly resolutions are all about. And the
weekly therapy with Chelsie, the reading, the journaling, and the
statement of intentioned living. But I feel like there is a mountain
of things to do before I get to where I want to be. The minute I
add something to my routine that I want to make a habit, I feel
like I fall short on something else. I really am trying to get it all
together at the same time. Hasn't happened yet, but I'm still
holding on to the hope that I can do it.
That's a lot to ask from handsfree cell phone device. I know. :)
