Tomorrow, I have a 16-hour drive back to Austin, Texas. I have been on the road this time for exactly 2 months. In that 2 months, My life has changed drastically. I have a new business model for my comedy career. My days of driving around the country aimlessly are done. Also, I just got engaged to the love of my life! I have a lot to be thankful for.
Today, though, I want to focus on how thankful I am that I am getting off the road this week. Here are 3 Things I Am Thankful For because I'm Getting Off The Road:
1. I'm thankful to have more quality time.
We all have the same amount of time each day. However, I have been spending a whole bunch of my time sitting in my car or sitting in planes. That's not living! That's sitting! This year, January through April, I've already spent 240 hours just sitting en route somewhere. That's 10 days of my life that are now gone! I've lost time!
This week, I am thankful because I will have time in Austin, Texas, one of my favorite cities on the planet- nay, in the universe!
When I'm at home, I can create a schedule that includes time for writing, performing, reading, exercising, & eating tacos. When you properly control your schedule, you can find balance in your life. I am thankful for that.
2. I get to eat right.
- $10 sandwiches & $15 burgers at the airport. Ridiculous! I can make a sandwich for less than $2.
- $20 at Waffle House?!?!?!? How is that possible? I don't know, but I spent $20.57 at Waffle House today!
- Pepperoni slices, cheese slices, lunchmeat slices, & dried banana chip slices. Yep. That's what I packed for my drive home tomorrow. That's probably really healthy for me. I wonder why I am constipated.
Bye! I'm Jake!
