On Fridays I drive to Rockford, on a trip that takes just shy of and hour and a half. If I had to do this trek on a daily basis it would be difficult, but once a week isn’t too bad.
As an introvert I enjoy my alone time, and I’ll often make the trip in silence. Thinking and rethinking. Coming up with solutions for problems that don’t really exist. Focusing on the unimportant and (more rarely) the important.
For me, this is relaxing and recharging. The 90 minute commute turned into a positive, instead of a negative. Today it is my goal to realize that, like a coin, most life events have two sides. My desire is to focus on the positive side, instead of dwelling on the negative side.
