unaware of surroundings

An interesting event happened to me yesterday on my way to work in the morning. I had forgotten about it until I walked past the same place today and therefore, decided I should write about it. Mostly for my own reminder. My parents dropped me off at their work place and I walked to the MTR station to continue my journey to work.

I had just bought some breakfast, looked at the time and decided if I didn’t get a move on I’d be late to work! So I walked faster, hoping to catch the green light on the main road before I have to wait another 3 minutes to cross the road.

As I walked, out of the corner my eye there was a lady on a wheelchair. Unconsiously, I tried to walk faster because I thought she wanted to ask me for donation or such similar to that. I had places to go, people to see and didn’t have the time for that. I walked about a meter ahead of her before I heard her say “Excuse me? Can you help me knock on the bus and let the driver know I’m here?”

There are then it hit me. Was I in that  much of a rush to not care about my surroundings? Had I suddenly converted back to that mentality? I’m sorry. Perhaps it didn’t look like it to her but it doesn’t matter what other people sees and detects, I know what I thought and in a way, it felt like a stab in the heart.

Again, I’m sorry. God continues to teach and mold me.
