I was stuck in traffic today driving to a friends house, and getting pissed about it. Not in the traditional, road ragey sense. And perhaps pissed is even too strong a word. In any case, I was getting assailed by uncomfortable emotions.
A thought hit me, would there be any scenario where I would choose this moment over another? For instance, I thought to myself, would I rather be here in this traffic jam or in a hospital? I would rather be here.
Would I rather be here, or in a world war I trench. Here. Would I choose here, or prison?…
Eventually, I came to an avenue of gratitude knowing that I would willingly and happily choose this moment.
