Maybe it’s all just a coincidence.
It began to rain during my lunch yesterday. Many people on scooters pulled over at the restaurant I was at to put on their rain suits. Many already soaked individuals rode on by. Some had white shirts stuck to them as if they were heading to a wet T-shirt contest. As I finished my dim sum, I realized that this rain was not about to let up. I ate slowly and sipped my iced tea through the “I am not plastic” straw. The mushy straw still worked but barely.
The red Ferrari
I munched on my food slowly so I could stay at the restaurant longer. Until I realized I was the only one left. I suppose it didn’t matter since I was alone, I could hang around here until the rain stopped. As I was staring at the road and the traffic passing, I noticed a red Ferrari. Well to be clear I first heard the roar of the engine. Not so hard to distinguish a Ferrari from the many boring cars in Bali. Well, the rain didn’t stop. It got progressively worse as I waited. I should have gone home as soon as I was done. This leads to the next point. If I would have left earlier, I would have missed the Ferrari. Sometimes we need to wait and get the timing right.
The right timing.
Isn’t life basically all about timing? Think about this. My condominium in Toronto is the perfect example. I lived on the 23rd floor of my condominium for several years. I had a dog and so I met more people than the average condo dweller. Yet I barely meet the people on my floor at the elevator and nearly never meet or bump into my neighbors. It is all about timing and about the split-second decisions one makes in life. If I hadn’t eaten extra slowly, I would have missed the Ferrari.
The way it should be.
Imagine if I left a bit earlier and as the Ferrari went by, I would have been on the road staring at it. In the process of staring at the red Ferrari I would have possibly stepped in front of a scooter or a car and gotten hurt or worse killed.
Life is about timing. Life is often one or two missteps away from disaster. Call someone a bad name and soon after the boss would arrive at the cubicle. However, you took the stairs and not the elevator, so you got to the cubicle before the boss. It’s the little things in life we need to look out for and assess those moments. One never knows when the timing is on or off. It just happens.
