Part of the deal today was that I received a “Costco Connection” magazine, which comes once a month to members. And yes, I love Costco, even just for the gas savings, it’s well worth the yearly fee.
Anyway, I look through this, and I mostly see things and stuff and deals that are so not me… things, things, things, things, things… All this furniture for big houses, even the big houses (financing for), cars, vacation packages (especially those “Hawaii” ones, where, among others, you can even go stay in a Disney-created fantasy of what people think Hawaii is, at Disney Aulani Resort (and Spa)… “Yes, stay there and never have to leave the resort to “experience” the “real” (aka, “Disney fantasy”) Hawaii”), pills for this, vitamins for that, and everything you could ask for to live the so-called “American Dream Life”.
To all of that, I say… “It ain’t me, and it ain’t for me!!!”
This is not an anti-Costco posting (I do love Costco shopping, and I take my Wegmans (Geneva NY) shopping bag (just one) and everything fits in that (no carts… ever)). But it is sort-of an anti-“American Dream Life” (which is a pure ego-created fantasy (just like the Disney Aulani resort)) posting. I mean, maybe some do have that as their path, but I actually tried it (for one year), and, I can joyfully report, I could not stand it.
I have not attempted anything like that ever again.
I have made peace with the fact that I am not “normal”, I am not “standard”, I am not going to be put into any box, I am not to follow any old paradigm, I am not here for anything like that.
I’m not even here to try and “help others” to find their path. The best I feel I can do for anyone, in my view, is to BE the ME that I AM (exclamation point!!)!
I am here to BE the I AM that I AM. I am here to BE in the flow, my flow, and to follow that flow wherever it go(es)… one moment at a time.
And so it BE… I AM… KP
