It won’t happen to me. I won’t ever be in that situation. I’m in control.
All lies. Things that can happen to anyone will happen to you. They did to me today.
This week was one I prepared to be a full schedule, a lot of travel and a lot to accomplish. I planned accordingly. I would go the gym earlier than normal, complete a tough workout routine, this morning just happened to be a rigorous leg day, head home, eat, pack up remaining meals for the day and leave to meet customers, my line manager and a mentee.
It went as planned. My boyfriend sent me an inspirational, motivating YouTube video on waking up in the morning and embracing it. So I did. Protein coffee and cream of rice digested and I was out the door. For 5:45 am, it was a little foggy. I didn’t think much of it. I worked out hard. As you can tell in this image, I was exhausted.
When I carefully climbed into my truck again at 7:15 am, the fog had not lifted. It was probably more dense than before. However, I turned on my Symphonic radio station on Pandora and basically zoned out. Going down the road felt like a dream. I go this way every day and know the path like clockwork. But, for some reason, I forgot about that stop sign.
