hi friends, have you ever faced accidents? what will be the things that cross your mind if the vehicle you travelling met up with an accident. i have had the feelings long ago. it was like 10 years ago, when i travel with my dad on bike. we had an accident and still i got the markings on my face. but i was too young at the time and loss the conscious at the place. thus i dont remember the feelings. while that was major, today the vehicle i traveled had an accident and it is minor. god's blessings, no one have had any harm. not a scratch. at first i got shocked. then as things are understood, the shock changed to smile. any way due to the incident i became late for my class. what are your experiences?

I was cycling to work and then stopped at a red light. A motorist reversed into my bike and I thought 'help'. Nobody heard me and I got emotionally hurt from this scary experience. I went to work shaking and feeling really sad. The care tacker mended my bike and a friend gave me a lift home after work and to work again the next day. So I think of the positive things that happened rather than the accident. I was on a trip of mine in the Maldives. I hired a bike from my hotel and cycled up a chain of islands. I met many friendly people and was having a lovely time stopping to take photos. On my way back I saw a beach from a distance and wanted to reach it. So I cycled down a street, got off my bike and pushed my bike on to the palm fringed beach. It has tiny islands off its coast and I was thinking wow. I didn't expect to get attacked in paradise. I felt the rest of that trip nervous and upset from that experience. When I flew back to Male I looked out of the window. I tried to feel better and put that awful experience behind me. For my next trip I picked to go to Eastern Europe and had a safe plus lovely time. I still go traveling and don't let the experience stop me. I keep away from lonely beaches.

devi -thank god I have not faced any major accidents. Now and then there use to some minor accidents which are managed. Think about happy experiences -- they will motivate you. when u talk of negative things negative feelings will come and you may feel bad. good day.
