"Instead I put my head down, glared at the asphalt and shouted at myself, 'You bloody idiot! Nobody made you do this! You only have yourself to blame!"
Isn't it funny how we sometimes make choices which later on will give us exactly what we need? It may be in the most spontaneous way and we may very well have agreed to something that was not very well thought through - and probably we will be very mad at ourselves for making us do this. But in the end there was probably some sort of sign telling us to take this opportunity. Remember, what you want is rarely the same as what you really need.
