Last night as I was coming home from a primordial movement class I was stopped by a red light. I sat there daydreaming through a song that had come on the radio, reflecting on the nourishing experience of the evening. Then I clued into how long I had been waiting there for the light to change. I considered running the red, since it was late, and there were no visible cars. I thought better of it…being someone who does not like to chance things by breaking rules. A few cars passed by in the opposite direction. Then the song”Renegades” by X Ambassadors came on the radio. I listened to the song in its entirely…another 4:17 passed…the light was still red. As I sat there, I considered running the red a few more times. Then it dawned on me that there was a different way! I didn’t need to sit there waiting, I could turn right on the red, then left into the plaza on the corner, then right again onto the road toward home. I smiled at the notion, and did it. As I continued my drive home, I continued to glance at the light in my rear view mirror. It was still red for the entire time it was visible to me.
I don’t need to break rules to get what I want, I just have to find new, different, and creative ways to work around road blocks.
Let’s be RENEGADES!!!!!!!!
