One week ago, on a Sunday morning, I was riding to visit a friend. Then an accident happened at one of the many crossroads in the city. A speeding car hit the side of the car that was just in front of me. Each of the two cars did an almost 360 degrees rotation after impact. And I was right behind the car that got hit.
After witnessing this accident, several thoughts crossed my mind: Had I been too close to the hit car, I would have been part of the accident. Also, had I overtaken the hit car earlier, I would have been the one hit by the drunk driver. I was simply lucky and couldn’t explain how and why I got this lucky.
The accident got me to realize how vulnerable we are as humans, and how one’s life can change in the blink of an eye. That accident was a reminder of how grateful I should be when I travel and arrive safely.
Come to think of it, how the accident happened was beyond the control of the guy who was hit by a drunk driver who was speeding at a crossroads. And so, since then, while in the daily pursuit of life goals, I not only appreciate the progress made but also the fact that I can start a day healthy, and finish the day healthy.
