**WARNING** This post may be a little bit heated.. I started diffusing peace and calming before I wrote this but I don’t think there is anything out there that will make me any less sad/mad.😡
Two weeks ago, Friday morning apparently someone broke into (snuck into) (freely gained entry into) our “secured-access” loft complex.. We found out TUESDAY. How you ask? By email? no. By word of mouth? no. By the police? NO. I got all dressed up and ready to ride and went downstairs to the basement and into the LOCKED bike room to remove our chained bikes from the cement bike rack.. only to find that they were NOT there. I ran up to the front office.. their response was not shock.. or concern.. just “oh, yeah.. there was a break-in”🙄
Let me explain what it would take for someone to get in. You would have to use a remote to scan into the back gate, then again to get into the building. THEN you would have to go ally the way down the hallway to the staircase/elevator that leads to the basement. THEEN find your way through the labyrinth that is the basement to the opposite side of the building where the (supposed-to-be) locked bike storage room is located. Then pull out your bolt cutters to cut both of our bikes free… then transport those bikes up a back staircase (which I can’t find and I live here) then get BACK into the building to steal another tenant’s bike and power tools out of his storage unit.. Totally seems like random strangers did this right..😒
I cannot express the anger and disappointment that we’ve experienced in dealing with our southtown loft complex. There are no words.. There are no oils. But there is a community with Young Living. The day after I found out, I also had to contact Young Living in their amazingly helpful live chat. Iva helped me figure out a Young Living question, but also asked me about my day. I couldn’t help but express my sadness for my missing bikes and her response was priceless. “Bikes are replaceable, don’t let them take your joy”, and she was right, they don’t deserve to take everything. They already took our bikes, they don’t get my happiness.
So today we choose to forgive.. but not to re-lease.
