5) The hint of an evening stroll-5/6 One day, God gave me a mission, He instructed me to lead a snail for an evening stroll. I cannot walk fast, the snail is already crawling with all its energy at best it can. Every time it only squeeze itself a tiny little bit of crawl. I hurry the snail, pester it, blame it, scolded it and even curse it with my evil eyes... The snail look up on me with its guilt-ridden and apologetic eyes, it's like saying to me, "I have already done my best!" I pull the snail, I push it, I drag it... I almost kick it. The snail is hurt, it's sweating tiredly and panting dyingly... while crawling forward bit by bit. "It's so weird", I scream with all my might. "Why God asked me to lead a snail on an evening stroll?!" I shouted. "Why God? Why!?" ... The sky is in silence. "Sigh! Maybe God is catching more stupid snails now!" I shouted in anger. "OK, fine!" I then let loose the snail. "Since God doesn't care now! Why would I! I will let loose this stupid snail! I won't care, I will let the snail do its own crawling at its own desire." While the snail crawling ahead of me, I sat and ranting behind it in deep anger and frustration. "Eh?! I smell sweet scents of flowers? Oh, there's a beautiful garden here. Why didn't I notice it all these years?" While I caught in amusement by the perfume flowers wear... a nice breeze hugs me with its tender warm touch. "Now I know how soft and lovely the evening tender breeze is... Ahhhh! So refreshing. Wait! I hear the sweet chirping of birds and insects in their beautiful and elegant melody. It's like an orchestra. Marvelous! I even see sparkling and twinkling little stars smiling at me from the sky above... Why didn't I notice all these in the past?" Suddenly, I was awaked, "I have made a mistake! God is actually asking the snail to lead me on an evening stroll!" ** LIFECOACHES: "Have you found your snail?
