It’s funny how you can complete the same task over and over again, to the point where you no longer think about it, and one day, that same task changes your life.
I walked into my kitchen one evening and misstepped and as a result, I now have a sprained foot.
Everywhere I go, I’m asked what happened?
What did happen? What went wrong in the walk that I make many times in a day?
Whenever I’m asked about my foot, I get embarrassed. I am still in disbelief as to how it happened. I walked normally when I felt my foot sort of fold over in pain.
Life is the same way. We go through our days in routinely fashion. Although I am doing mostly the same thing each day, ANYTHING can happen. I can be delayed on the highway to work, have late meetings, have an accident, etc. There are so many things that can go wrong and well just by living but there is always something to gain.
We need to always prepare for the worst but expect the best in everything we do. One day you may break your arm but the next day you could find $50. I went into my kitchen expecting one thing and got something totally unexpected. I learned something though. I learned more compassion for though who are disabled.
Life is a gamble but in every chance you take, there is something positive to take and apply to life.
