I park my car somewhere virtually everyday, so I am pretty familiar with this process.

That being said, it is almost guaranteed that every time I come out from wherever, I will not know where my car is.

I don't know what it is, but I can never find it.

To make matters even worse, I will not use the alarm or the lock/unlock buttons on my key, because naturally once I have lost my car (again), my pride kicks in and it becomes a challenge/game.  I typically walk around aimlessly for several minutes, and have no idea where to start the search. 

It would be great if I could have a GPS locator for my car...

Furthermore, I'm generally too stubborn to use GPS while driving, so consequently I probably wouldn't use a GPS locator to find my vehicle in the sea of cars anyway...

Once the "not again" realization settles in, I always tell myself "you are smarter than this car Richie...just know how to do this".

Thankfully, I always find my car, but never in the time I'd like to.

If ever I have a passenger with me, I typically stall with some high end rant while I nervously try to locate my vehicle.  It must be painful to endure for the passengers, but they don't have much of a choice.  I will always try to talk away the embarrassment.

That being said, I do love when I have a passenger who knows of my deficiencies.  The minute we reach the dreaded parking lot, and I feel the sweat building up along my brows, I always hear them say confidently, "it's right over there".  The rush of relief is euphoric.

All in all, getting lost isn't a new happens to everyone.  Sometimes you'll be by yourself, and other times there will be someone to help guide you.

Regardless, don't be quick to give up.  Take on the challenges, and see where your potential may lead you. 

It is way easier to stop then it is to continue on, but that means no progression will be made. 

You won't always find exactly what you're looking for at the specific moments you would like to, but the journey is where character is built, and with experience, it is solidified.

So next time you see me wandering through the parking lot, visibly confused and distraught...

Just know that I'm on my way to making a better version of myself...

And more than likely have lost my car, yet again...

Until next time,

Long Live The People
