Take some back roads..

..because you just may find yourself.
I'm gonna let you all in on a secret of mine.
Shh
Now, don't go tellin' anyone.

Whenever I'm feeling a little down, I hop in my truck and drive with no end destination in sight.
It helps me think.
It makes me feel in control.
And I get to listen to my favorite songs for a few hours.
Nothing can calm me down the way a good drive can.
Me and driving are practically made for each other.
Well, ne and just about a trillion other people.
But that's beside the point.
Railroad crossing!
I like driving past trains and looking at how they seem to stand still when they're passing you by.
I love seeing the houses that people call their homes.
I find it fascinating to observe my fellow drivers, but I really love when the road is all mine.
I really enjoy getting myself lost and finding my way home.
I love driving on dirt roads.
I especially like driving with my windows down.
However and wherever I choose to drive are beside the point, what matters is that I'm driving.
{PS. Sorry planet Earth for all the emissions caused by me and my aimless drives.}

Next time you're feeling out of control and in need of a pick me up, take a nice, long drive.
It can work some wonders on your mood.
