It is a god’s blessing to be able to do things which you didn’t even envisioned. And if you are an atheist then it is a pure good luck that you are granted such an opportunity.
Swimming for me happened like a magic. I couldn’t have imagined ever that I could swim – one it was expensive and other is the time excuse each one of us give.
There is only 24 hours for everyone and somehow you and me give excuses of time like it could be a valid one. Every time someone gives an excuse of time they are telling it ain’t something up in their list of priorities. It is easy to say – you love dancing. But unless you aren’t going and practicing like hardcore, you don’t have dancing as a priority.
So I landed up swimming mostly with my 2 buddies almost everyday in a week. And the scam continued for a long time until…
Can I Join?
And then another colleague asked if she can join. Sure enough the other 2 buddies welcomed her. But I was left in a state of discomfort. Because adding someone new brings challenges. How the conversation will flow, will she be able to cope up and many more things to worry.
If she hates you and love your buddies then it will bring more trouble than harmony. So it was a great bridge I need to cross.
But she came and there was the initial discomfort and I was not at ease. Sure enough it was a bad idea or was it…
After doing this for 2 months, I realized what was in my mind – the preconceived notion made my experience worse.
On the contrary, if I smiled and was open the experience would have been better. And so I did that. It doesn’t matter is she was bad in conversation or after the swimming was done.
For the time moment, if I did my part chances were high the experience would go awesome even if she was added.
So next time, you see someone joining – be open. And you will experience a better time. Go get swimming.
