Do you ever wonder what might have been?
Almost 7 billion people in the world and hundred of them cross our paths daily. Do you ever wonder...
Today was a rather long day for me. It started out at the hairdressing salon, I only wanted to do something simple but my hairdresser kept me waiting for over an hour. From there I wove through the traffic to attend the Toastmasters meeting at The Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island. Immediately after that I had a brief meeting with a new client not too far from them and after that I was suddenly struck by hunger so intense, I'd have died if I didn't eat right then! I immediately rushed down to Grand Square, grabbed moimoi and fish, drove to a small mall nearby, parked and ate my food (took a picture to show my sister just how famished I was).
From there I headed to Ikoyi for a product launch. It wasn't really my scene as it was a hair product and I was the only non-Naturalista there and I felt like everyone was secretly judging me and would later openly judge me and it made me feel like a turtle without its shell. LOL. But I needed to be there because I was invited, and I also wanted some inspiration from the set-up, as an Events Cordinator concerned 😊😊😊.
That over, I had to catch up with a few old QC girls for drinks at Churchill's and then at about 8pm I headed towards Chevron.
Sitting in the Jakande traffic, I began to feel a pair of eyes on me, after resisting the urge, I finally looked to my left and sure enough a pair of eye were trained on me, and when its owner saw that he'd gotten my attention, he smiled and waved.
Very cute smile, I waved back.
Unfortunately at the moment the cars in front of me began to move, I looked at his lane and saw that he's wasn't moving. I had to move, so move I did. Shortly after he was at my side again, and this time he had wound down and was beckoning me to do the same so that we could (talk?)
I tried to decide what to do but the lane began to move again, and this time, it was moving really fast. I'd never been so upset to see traffic ease up. Aaaaargh!
A few minutes later he was closing in on me again but my lane was really free and his was quite slow and I had to move and I'd hoped that he would catch up, but a few minutes later it was obvious that I had lost him. Forever.
And as I drove on into the night I kept wondering about him and what could have been. Who is he? Where is he going? What's his name? What if he could have been that connection that I've been praying for? What if he could have been a business partner? What if he could have been a (the?) great love of my life? What if he could have brought so much chaos into my life that I'd curse the day I met him? What if what if what if???
On and on I wondered.
Some people say we meet everyone one we're meant to meet in our lives but I don't believe that. There are almost 7 billion people in the world and I believe that we're meant to meet as many people as possible and a few among these would play very important roles in our lives...
Do you ever lock eyes with a stranger and move on, and wonder what could have been if either one of you said a simple "Hello"?
