Words have always been very important to me, almost therapeutic you can say. My work requires me to stay quiet and concentrate for a longer period of time and since I seldom indulge in talks these days (just in office, don’t think I’m the quiet sorts!), so I had sort of “forgotten” how much I love to talk and of course, write. A few minutes back I had a pleasant talk with one of my colleagues. I had come to submit a few documents to her, never thinking I would actually have more than 2 minutes of “official-courtesy” talk. After the submission was done, she suggested we should go for coffee, I agreed, thinking that it would be a good idea.
So, we settled down with a hot cup of CCD coffee and started talking. Since she is the (more) chirpy sorts, so she initiated. We talked general stuff but her positive vibrancy and enthusiasm was infectious, it had me hooked too. During the talks, it just hit me, albeit gently, that having that little spark of positivism burning inside you really works wonders. The usual mundane things and monotonous routine, the disappointments and so many negative aspects of your life vanish in thin air if you are positive within or come in contact with people who are teeming with positivity. There was nothing life-changing about the conversation, but her sheer enthusiasm and a positive persona taught me a precious lesson: don’t worry, be happy and keep talking:)
