Traveling has always been challenging but I still dream of doing it like I imagine most people do without making it so complicated. Drive someplace, drive home. I tell myself it shouldn’t be that hard, I’m overthinking it, but for me it’s a huge challenge that I avoid. Of course avoiding challenges is worse than facing them. Let me write that down…”
