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.
