You didn’t know there was a metal pole in the middle of telephone posts, but now you do. So that’s your takeaway for the day. You learned something. Stay positive.
You cough up blood again, but you remind yourself it’s important to remember that the human body is resilient and full of blood, so this doesn’t necessarily mean you’re dying. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, so they say. You choose to believe them, whoever they are.
The car is on fire, which you feel may be a red flag. It’s crucial, though, to approach these situations with an open mind. Just because fire is hot doesn’t mean it wants to burn you. That’s just how it is. It’s fire’s nature.
The smoke begins to feel your lungs but you’re thankful that it’s burning rubber and gasoline, not tobacco, so you’ve stayed true to your mother’s dying wish that you would quit. There’s a silver lining in every cloud of poisonous ashen gas.
You lose consciousness as you see the firemen running toward your burning car. At least you’ve given them a renewal of sense of purpose. You’re glad to have been of service.
