I am directionally challenged. Even though I have driven in Phoenix for 40 years, if I am going to a place that I am not familiar with I take my GPS. At night I don't have a clue which was is which. This has always caused me problems. Years ago, when I was a school bus driver, I had a night field trip to ASU for a football game. I got there fine, and was directed to designated parking. For the return trip, I was directed to a street and had to turn right. I noticed I was on Rural Road, now I was supposed to be on Scottsdale Road. I broke out into a sweat--Where was I? Here I had a whole busload of rowdy kids, and not a clue where I was. I figured I would keep going south and surely I would see something familiar. Finally I came to a freeway, and with the help of BIG signs, I found my way back. The other drivers said I was so smart to take the freeway instead of going across the city thereby missing all the traffic. I didn't say a word. Note: When I got home, I dug out the map and found that the road changed names at the university. So actually I was on the right road but going the wrong way. All this reminds me of a saying I saw "He who doesn't know where he is going may miss it when he gets there".
And this brings to mind a scripture
Proverbs 17: 24 A discerning person keeps wisdom in view, but a fool’s eyes wander to the ends of the earth. (NIV)
