I realized that I generally use my blog as a sounding board when all I want to do is scream and rant. But some days are so nice, and yet I forget to write about them and put it out in the universe. May be because these instances are very rare. It hardly ever happens that you come across someone totally random, and have no expectations of any kind whatsoever, and what you experience is pure, carefree, human interaction.
Today was one such day. I had given a basil plant to the guy I carpool with yesterday. He said that some lady who sits next to him had asked if she could get one too. So I potted a little cutting for her and sent it along with him. I received such a beautiful e-mail from her sometime back. She thanked me for sending a little pot to a total stranger. She was only expecting a small cutting. So we got to talking, and in the next e-mail exchange, she thanked me profusely again for getting her a potted plant and finally giving her the push to kick-start her kitchen garden. She spoke about how little gestures just make your day
Those were such kind words from a lady I hadn’t even met, that it made my day as well. I hope that more and more people cool down enough in their daily lives to be able to look around and appreciate the little things. That is such a welcome change in the otherwise rat race like corporate life.
I hope I don’t sound like a typical motivational speaker. 😛
