Lately, I’ve been wondering. Ok, in the last seven days, I’ve been wondering if things happen for a reason, or simply by accident.
Yes, I am specifically talking about my little accident. But more to the point, I’m curious to know IF I broke my right arm completely by chance, or because there is something else at work.
Did ‘Fate’ play a hand in me being where I was, at that particular time, when it was raining, when the pathway was wet and slippery, when my shoes didn’t / couldn’t grip the surface sufficiently, when my other hand was full and unable to assist with breaking my fall?
Did I foresee ‘something’ was going to happen? Did I have a premonition?
I think maybe I did. I was only recently I’ve thought a lot about teaching myself to write with my left hand. I even went so far as to buy a book I could use to practice writing in. Now I know there isn’t a need for a special book to use, but I was curious and wanted to keep all my efforts in one place so I could look back and assess my progress.
But I hadn’t started, and the book remained unused.
As I see it, the Universe delivered a broken right arm and no excuse to put it off any longer. And therefore, while I’m (slightly) incapacitated, I am determined to learn to write with my left hand.
So far, I think I’m progressing nicely.
Each day, I open my book and write the date at the top of the page. I then proceed to write the alphabet in lowercase and uppercase. I write my numbers and have started to include some punctuation marks, a few symbols, and yesterday tried to write ‘we’re, don’t, you’re’ and the big one – ‘Hello, my name is Clare’.
Circles and curves are giving me a bit of trouble, but I’m sure I’ll get there with them. At least I can now write the entire alphabet on one line – in lowercase anyway.
It’s a miracle!
I can’t sign my name yet, but I can write it legibly and did so three times yesterday. Woohoo! I deserve some sort of medal for those efforts considering other people could read – and comprehend – what I’d written.
“Give this woman a trophy for writing with her left hand!”
Like I’m the first person in history to ever do so.
Anyway, I do wonder if purchasing that book was a prelude to a broken arm, that I had a strong feeling something was about to happen.
Or that everything simply the result of random actions and reactions.
What do you think?
