My car’s out of commission, which means I am in a different car for the time being. Basically my whole life is in my car including my GSP, Camile. I hadn’t realized how much I had become dependent on Camile as a traveling companion. I hadn’t realized how much I had become a passive participant on life’s road, listening to someone else dictate my journey and tell me which way to turn. I was lost when I was left to my own devices.

At some point, I decided to live my life the same way, sitting back and letting others dictate which way I was headed rather than actively choosing where I was headed. I desperately need recalculating. It’s time for me to take the Avett Brothers’ advice:

Decide what to be and go be it
There was a dream and one day I could see it
Like a bird in a cage I broke in and demanded that somebody free it
