Cross the road mindfully

Here is to share a lesson that I have learnt a week ago. It is to cross the road mindfully.

To think that I was the one who reminded my dear grandmother not to use the mobile phone while crossing the road and while walking. However, I was the one who was using the mobile phone while talking with my grandmother on the phone!

A week ago, I was talking with my grandmother using my mobile phone. I must have been too occupied with the conversation that I continued to use the phone while crossing the road! The mistake it was. While I managed to see the cars and tried to make sure that they had stopped before I crossed the road, there was a cyclist on a bicycle but I did not see him! Then a collision happened. Both myself and the cyclist fell onto the ground, so did the bicycle.

Thankfully, both myself and the cyclist sustained superficial injuries only. I apologized to the cyclist for the part that I have to play in causing the collision. I was grateful that the cars had stopped when the collision happened and that both myself and the cyclist were safe.

Yes, the lesson has been learnt. Please cross the road mindfully. Refrain from using mobile devices when crossing the road please.
