The sky sneezed and the heavens cried. I dodged the droplets of rain and I ran to seek shelter. The rain subsided and I continued walking. I smiled and was comforted because I remained dry. I crossed the main road and I continued walking. A vehicle approached me and the front ,left wheel descended into a depression on the paved road that was now a puddle. I was the recipient of all the dirty water in the puddle. My left side was drenched, I was irritated for a split second, then I realised that I was four minutes away from my destination. I started thinking of the days that the driver used to walk. I am sure that he was splashed with dirty water by a motorist in his youth. I also considered all the pedestrians I may splash water on in the near future. Then I realised that’s life. Sometimes you love, sometimes you lose. Some days you are up,other days you feel down. In any race,someone has to win,someone has to lose. Life consists of these fleeting moments and it is your responsibility to take delight in them. In the alternative, you can worry and become frustrated by things that are beyond your control.
