Last week I got mugged and was robbed off my phone, some money and got injured in the episode. The very next day, a dear friend got to know and called me up to find out about my well being. When I told him, I was out of town and was enjoying the weekend with a few friends at a resort, he started abusing me! He said, how could I enjoy when all that had happened a day before with me!
To his and a lot of other people's astonishment, I wasn't in deep grief about what had happened. To be honest, I was really frightened, in deep grief (in fact I still am) and out of senses for quite some time. But then, I decided to Move On! I did not get the point of sitting at home and thinking about the incident and curse myself or other people. What's the point in doing that? The best way out is to forget everything and move ahead in life. Yes, my phone was expensive; yes i got hit; yes i was under trauma but then the phone is gone, the criminals were no more there and the way the Police behaved, i know there is no chance of the miscreants getting caught and my phone being recovered. So, better relax and accept. The sooner we accept things, the better we feel.
I bought a new phone the next day, got my number reactivated and left on a drive a few hundred kilometres away from my city. Returned fresh and was back attending client calls and making business proposals the next day. After all, as an entrepreneur, you can't afford to waste time! Move On!
