I don’t know about any of you who drive, but I am NOT fond of the back-up-into-a-space parking maneuver. It takes me sometimes several rather embarrassing tries before I get the vehicle pretty close to being equidistant between the painted lines.
But I do it because it’s easier driving forward than backing up to leave the spot. It’s a habit I got into a while back. It’s also great if you want to avoid water sprinkler stains on your windshield.
But I’m just not that good at it.
So rather than berate myself for yet another failed attempt, I cleverly changed the narrative from not great at back up parking to I am proud of flaunting the established rules. No one tells me how I should park. I’m an individualist, not one who conforms to protocol.
It seems to be working pretty well for me. Now when I drive to Starbucks for my morning coffee, I can feel confident that when I get out of my car and walk toward the Starbucks Store, I will be walking as the embodied master who bows to no one.
They can all scoff at me, point their fingers, whispering to one another that I am crazy, or really bad at parking, or selfish enough to take up two perfectly good parking spaces….but none of it will pierce my newfound allegiance to being my own rule maker. At least when it comes to parking in a relatively empty parking lot.
And to all of you, dear ascension pioneers, I say the following:
We must go out into this world each day, and make our mark. We need to exercise our god-given right to defy the laws of man, to show who is boss of their own reality. To cower to no one.
You must laugh at all those conventionalists who concede to the lesser gods of the establishment and meticulously park their cars so that they take up only one parking space.
To you who have the ears to hear, and the hearts to understand, I say, be bold, be brave, and if you can take up three perfectly good parking spaces, don’t hold back. I await your photos. God speed.
Enjoy Best Friend from Cosmic Blend
