Sometimes my mind goes to a scary place. As I was sitting at the front of the line at a traffic light a short while ago, it occurred to me that I had a certain amount of power over every car behind me for the next several minutes.
Whatever I did or didn't do could influence not only their morning but, possibly, their whole day. If you extend that thought, any hesitation by me whether of one minute or three, could have affected someone's whole life (if they were fired for being late, got into a wreck further up the road) or the entire universe, for that matter, with one giant ripple effect.
I drove forward when the light changed, but, still...think about it.
Edited to add (this is the WEIRD part):
Shortly after I wrote this post, I found out that a girl I work with had a fender bender at the same light I wrote the above post about. It happened about ten minutes after I was at the light. However, I stand by my theory that, had I hesitated even thirty seconds after the light turned green, it might have totally changed that event, for better or worse.
Did I have a premonition of her accident?
