I highly doubt you turned around and went back home at the first or second or fourth light.
So why do people have the strange theory that everything in their lives must be aligned and ready before they start anything?
Things will never line up perfectly. If you needed to drive across town to collect $1 million dollars, you wouldn’t care if every single light was red. Nothing would stop you. So why quit on yourself when you face a setback or a pause or things aren’t as smooth as you envisioned?
You have a full tank of gas. Just wait out the damned light and keep going.
