Waiting for the perfect moment
I came across this a while back.
A college girl had got her dream scooter from her parents, but she never took it out on the streets. When her friends asked her she said - "I'll wait for the day when all traffic signals are green and then I'll take it out"!
This is how we tend to take life at times don't we? We wait for things to get perfect. Only it never does, and life could have been so much more if only we took chances despite its imperfections. Neither does taking chances guarantee anything, there is no certainty. Only an opportunity. Besides we've just got one life.
