And again

I am pretty sure I was tapped as the Easy World spokesperson not just because I can't keep a secret, but because I need to learn how to stay in Easy World more than most!

I had a hair appointment this afternoon, and found myself dreading the trip for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that the salon is on the 2nd floor of a building that has crazy levels and only one elevator that is at the opposite end of the building from where I need to be, and on the back of the building when the salon entrance is in front. The back parking lot, which is closest to the elevator, is very narrow, and has almost always been jam-packed when I've been there, and even though they have 2 handicapped spaces near the elevator hallway, they have usually been occupied. If you go as far into the parking lot as you need to go to assess the availability of the handi-gimp spaces (there is a dumpster that blocks your view of them from the parking lot entrance), there is no easy egress and no easy way to turn around. You may have guessed by now that I've had some challenging experiences with this.

The other big thing I was concerned about was that I have been having a severe problem with my knee this week, and when I was at the health food store Monday, I wasn't sure I was going to even make it around the store because it was out of joint or something and there were severe stabbing pains when I tried to walk on it. So I wondered if I would be able to make the somewhat long walk from the elevator to the salon. In addition, I'm doing a colon and liver cleanse to detox from mercury, etc., and the urge to go to the bathroom has been striking without much warning, and it's been all I could do to make it to the bathroom in time. And as I prepared to leave the house, I had a bit of a headache, felt a little shaky, and remembered I hadn't eaten lunch and it was too late to do more than take a big swig of kefir, my emergency nourishment. All these things (and a few more not worth mentioning) are on my mind as I set out for the hair appointment.

So...I'm sitting at the light just before the salon, already trying to figure out what I'm going to do if the back lot is full (last time the lot was full, I had to walk a long way and climb the stairs, neither of which is the best thing for me, especially today). And just as I'm imagining being late, harried (not a hair salon pun), and having to haul myself up the steps, I realize what I am doing and I just say, "Hey wait a minute! I choose to live in Easy World where everything is easy!" then breathe and relax and feel the change in the air--it's like a shift to higher oxygen content with more ozone and negative ions. I immediately somehow knew that I would have no problem at all. Sure enough, when I got there, both spaces were free, so I parked easily, made the decision not to take my big heavy totebag, and just to carry my water bottle, car key, and credit card, which fit in my jeans' pocket. I had absolutely no problems at all--it didn't even hurt to walk (I confess that I had loaded up on ibuprofen in the morning in anticipation), the kefir had done the trick to settle my stomach, and I never even thought about the bathroom.

Who knows for sure how I shifted the parking lot situation by invoking Easy World? And all the other concerns? It for sure made a huge difference in the way I viewed things, which, as any physicist will tell you, affects outcomes. And really--that parking lot is always jammed and today, it was not...
