During my walk to the metro I was shocked to see roadkill. Now this shouldn’t be too much of a surprise but I hadn’t even seen a rat in the entire time I have lived in Dubai. I was debating about changes in my professional setting when I almost stepped on the poor squashed creature.
Life is a process that ebbs and flows through time and is never standing still. Question is are you? How easy would it be to be turned into roadkill in the process of living? We all make mistakes in life and the journey we travel is one of wonder and amazement or of hell and nightmares. You pick which side of the coin you want your life to be. I certainly pick wonder and amazement.
I am not always so philosophical and things like forgetting to buy milk and having to drink my morning tea black can annoy me and people walking on a footpath and stopping in the middle drives me batty. Though I most certainly do not choose to become roadkill on my journey of life.
My gratitude to my life is extremely high this morning, this afternoon might not be so high… Christmas shopping in The Dubai Mall on a Friday may just test my gratitude but a wrapping a gift for a loved one will bring it all back!
