Look At The Spaces

I hate bus stops.

Today while I was riding my bike to work, I realized how much I hate bus stops.  You see, there is always a bench that sits away from the street and then there is always a bus stop sign that sits very close to the street, so inevitably I have to zig zag to get around this obstacle that is on almost every block.

Last year, while passing a bus stop a woman stood up and I had to zag instead of zig, ended up kissing the bus stop pole pretty hard, and flipped.  I was hurt and my bike was pretty unhappy.

So now bus stops are what I dread the most.

Well, on the way to work today I was coming up to a bus stop and I just decided I was going to focus on the space I had between the obstacles instead of the obstacles themselves and it was the easiest bus stop I ever biked through.

And then it hit me, when you concentrate on the obstacles it gonna seem hard, when you concentrate on the open spaces, it's a breeze.

It's time to start concentrating on the open spaces of life.
