While driving, I normally don’t change lanes unless it is absolutely necessary. The road safety experts say that we should never weave in and out of lanes of traffic because it is dangerous.
But last week, while returning home from work in that busy rush hour, the mother of junior suggested that I do it to avoid the waiting time. When I complied, the lane I left started to move faster than the one I was in.
She exclaimed ‘o hoo!’ but I smiled and said to her that more learning can occur when there are obstacles than when there are none.
This can sound strange but you may find it unexplainable whenever you try dialing a wrong number. The call gets through smoothly and you never get an engage tone.
It also happens in the kitchen as soon as your hands get coated with flour while preparing those chapattis; your nose begins to itch.
Even on that day when you had started to fix that broken cupboard at home, the screw driver drops off your hands and rolls to the least accessible corner.
In all these scenarios, be strong and remain positive.
Life is full of surprises and chances. Being open to the unexpected is an important part of success. It is always not nice to lie to your boss. Nothing is more infuriating and hurtful than being lied to. But sometimes you can decide to hide the truth and if you tell the boss you were late for work because you had a flat tyre, the next morning you will have a flat tyre. Strange…. isn’t it?
I waited for him to come and fix my television set. After a long wait, I decided, in the mean time, to take a quick bath. As and when I immersed my body in the tub, the door bell rang. I accepted that as part of life. In life, the probability of meeting someone you know increases when you are with someone you don’t want to be seen with. This shouldn’t worry you much because difficulties in life are vital for our personal growth and well-being.
Next time you decide to prove to a dealer that a machine you bought isn’t working, don’t be surprised if it does. Every time you want to scratch your body, you will notice that the severity of the itch is inversely proportional to its reach. Keep calm and always be prepared!
At the movies, you will always notice that the people with the seats at the furthest from the aisle will always arrive last. Take it easy. It is part of life. They come so that you can enjoy the economies of scale. At the office, as soon as you start to enjoy a cup of hot coffee or tea, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee or tea gets cold. Don’t get upset; know that no matter how bad things may seem, there is always hope. If you try to plan every step, you may miss those wonderful twists and turns.
Life is a thing that mutates without warning, not always in enviable ways. You never know what you’re gonna get. Sometimes it can decide on its own to be peculiar. Just find your next adventure-do it well and enjoy it!
