One of my favorite things to do during my commute is to leave behind thoughts and feelings of where I'm travelling from and contemplate where I am headed. This helps me get into the proper mindset for whatever my destination is, whether it be work, church, home, basketball, or some other event or meeting.

I am not always successful in this transition (and I'd love to blame it on the commute being shorter than I expected, but that's almost never true), but when I am, it makes a world of difference. I can hit the ground running, so to speak, and am much better prepared to play whatever role is asked of me.
Song Of The Day:
I actually enjoyed "On My Way Home" by Enya as a sort of returning from my church mission song. I used to daydream about the flight home from Los Angeles with the words from that tune playing softly in the background. Now I sometimes think of it as I drive home from work or church or any other place. As stated in the lyrics "On my way home, I'll remember all the best days" and typically those are days with family and friends. Now who wouldn't want to daydream about those times?!
