A few days ago, I has this feeling to go to the park and I wasn’t really thinking I’ll go for seeing the sunset. Then it just occur the reflection was beautiful, one little duck was swimming and I went on watching sky changing its color as the sun was setting.
It usually gets very crowded on Friday night because it’s the last day of the week and they tend to go to their favorite places and come back at very similar times from 9 p.m or so. It’s so crowded that each time they hop on or hop off, the train also moves along with them.
Today I was not very happy with a man who seemed to hold on to my bag very often, but besides a side glance I didn’t do anything because there was no much space. Then some people hop off and I could turn my back and fully met his face. That’s when i realized something. I hadn’t been pleased with that man who actually cannot see. I’m really sorry I didn’t fully understand his situation. So I moved aside and gave my place to him.
So my reminder for today is I should look at the situation as a whole, put myself in their shoes, before getting upset with anyone.
“Did you ever wonder if the person in the puddle is real, and you’re just a reflection of him?”

Whatever is the answer, it doesn’t matter anyway. All you have to know is what ever you are, do your best with it.
If we do not get lost, may be we couldn’t feel so appreciated to be back on track again or to have made a new exploration on a new road.
So for some reasons, we do need reflection, it doesn’t confuse us but help us growth.
