# 0208 Peace and Blessings Every Day
My blue convertible

I remember the first day she arrived. She made
my heart race. I daydreamed about all the places
she could take me. All the heads that would turn, and
all the attention I would get--and yes, it did get me a lot
of attention.

A couple of years ago I purchased a midnight blue Lexus SC430.
A hardtop convertible. A car with a high caliber for
performance. Plush leather interior. Light wood-trim. Top-rated
stereo system. Seat warmers. The works.

The car really was beautiful and I got it at an age that most
people would only dream of being able to.

A lot of the purchase and wanting for this car was to feed
my ego. Knowing the prestige it gave me in college of driving this car.
Knowing I would attract more females. Knowing I was able to afford it
and pay it off the day I bought it.

I would wash this car every weekend to keep it clean and spotless.

I was tied to this car. This car was one of the ways I identified
myself with.

Yet, here I am now selling this car.

I don’t drive it anymore. It just sits in the garage collecting dust.

Although the car is just as beautiful, it has lost the appeal it
used to once have for me.

I think to myself, “Why?”

I realize I do not associate myself with the car anymore.

I realize I have worked to start becoming in control of my ego.

I realize that I don’t like tying myself to material possessions.

I realize I am no longer wanting to be a slave to the status quo.

Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying it is wrong to buy a high-end
luxury car or luxury anything. If you like something and you aren’t
going to be a slave to debt then go for it. I am not saying I am
not going to try to enjoy some of the fruits of this life--people who
know me know I am very ambitious.

I am more saying I have tried to tame my ego by not thinking
I am better than anyone else by owning something like my Lexus

I am more saying who I am as a person is not defined by what I

I am more saying my priorities in life are changing as I get older.

Who I am as a person is defined by my relationship with my maker,
how I treat others, and the good I try to do around the environment I
am in.

My SC430 will forever be in my memory as my first luxury sports
car, but just like everything else in life, its time has passed and
its purpose has been served.

Inner Peace Be Upon You.
