As hard as I pushed, nothing happened. I tried all the little tricks we had learned over the past 3 years, but this time they didn’t work. I was stuck, trapped in the lobby at work. All thanks to a temperamental front door that was ruining my night.

I kept trying for a while, as my frustration bubbled over. It got the better of me, until I realized that it didn’t matter if I conquered the door or not. Yes, I wish the door had opened, and I wish that they would fix it. But in the midst of everything, I let myself lose sight of the point.

The point was to get out.

If that was the point, then fighting a losing battle didn’t really make sense. So I gathered up the belongings I had discarded during my single minded quest and made my way to the side door. That door opened, and I walked outside. Finally free.

    Awesome, Kate, simply awesome. Very true. Thanks for sharing. This made me think of the scene in ‘Ever After’ where da Vinci opens the dungeon door by taking out the pins on the hinges. :)
