This one is going to be a little different. I'm just going to be free writing from the top of my head.
I've been in Houston for a little over 12 years now.
During that entire time the city has been under construction from Cypress to Pearland. Going from one side of the city the other side is like traveling out of time. There is always traffic.
Life is very similar to the construction I've experienced in Houston. It's like you know where you going but just don't know what you are going to encounter along the way. It could be a quick drive with no traffic or a huge wreck that shuts the whole freeway down. When that happens it may slow you down a little bit but it's rare that you don't you get to your destination. Stay focus!
