Today, I locked my keys in my car, housekeys and all. I didn't have a spare housekey, so had to use a ladder and climb in a window! Well, guess what! I'd like to say, I serenely took it one step at a time, but I didn't. I got irrate with the woman I was shopping with, we were going shopping, I had promised her we would go even though I didn't really want to, but I didn't REALLY want to go. So, in my mind I blamed her! Would you believe it? How much sense does that make! She didn't lock the keys in the car, it was my mindlessness. Maybe I was dwelling on my own righteousness (patting myself on the back for following through on a commitment). So, despite all of that, I was able to accomplish getting the car keys and a neighbor drove me to the car. My point is, even though I still do not do this perfectly, it was still progress over a previous reaction. Case in point, several years ago, I did same thing, not only did the battery die, but I locked the keys in my car. I was so mad, andfrustrated 'Why do these things ALWAYS happen to ME!'... Well, I did call an old timer, crying because I didn't have much resources then and had to pay a locksmith. After patiently listening to me, he said, M, how important is this going to be a month from now! Well! Though I was still wimpering, I have never since forgotten what he said. So, today, even though I was 'wimpering' in my mind, I didn't have to make another suffer (too much anyway)... and things turned out all right. My point here, being, this program is about progress not perfection. And even though I may continue to rant, rave, and stomp my feet, I do not do it as often. Where that used to be the rule, it is more the exception today. I can appreciate that!
