Tackling Terrible Traffic Tempers
Anyway, the new commute takes me roughly 35 minutes. Not much of a commute to some but considering my last commute was a mere five minutes, the morning drive seems like an eternity. In those thirty-five minute of driving yesterday, I was tense, stressed, and so annoyed that once I got to work, I was exhausted.
Last night I vowed to made today different. I woke up early and stocked my bag full of new and upbeat music. I decided that if I have to sit in stop and go traffic for a half hour, I was going to find someway to enjoy it. The traffic was even worse this morning than it was yesterday if that's even possible. I tried to document this madness but there was a motorcycle cop in the lane next to me and I didn't want him to mistake snapping pics for texting.
By the time I hit the freeway, I was singing at the top of my lungs. Heck, I think I even mastered Busta Rhyme's rap from 'Look At Me Now.' Lol. Well...maybe not but I put in words that rhymed. The point is that I reached my destination less stressed than I was yesterday. I'm going to consider this my Mad Morning Meditation.
