Attention, Please!

Standard

I was in haste and on a mission to catch someone earlier today. I had to meet her or all preceding efforts would be in vain.

I was about to cross the street. There was a private vehicle approaching. I waited for it to get past me. Then I took two steps forward all the while looking to my left to see if there’s another one. There was none, so I went on. As I looked to my right while taking another step, I bumped into the rear end of the vehicle that I thought was already distant or at least far enough for me to completely get to the other side. That one caught me by surprise! But I still managed to laugh at myself. Nyahahaha… 😄

How often does a person bump into a car instead of the car bumping into the person? Unusual, it is! Isn’t that what happens when we are always in a hurry? Miscalculated mishaps here and there. We get annoyed by the littlest of things. We get so focused on where we want to be that we don’t care anymore how we get there. In five years or less, one may be in a different situation—the one he’s worked hard for, but he may also become a different person—the one he’s never wanted to be. Hence, paying attention to what we’re becoming as we work hard to reach our goals is of great importance.
