The Cool calm cucumber #atozchallenge










When there is a lot of work my hyperactive mode gets activated. I start moving, talking, walking and almost doing everything quickly, in rapid action. I know I am anxious by nature and maybe so I always admired loud people. I am in such a rush that even if I want to slow down I can’t and suddenly it reminded me of him.

                                I had seen him many times, ofcourse he used to visit my office at times but never did it happen that he was not wearing his smile. There was never ever a raised brow or a furrowed brow but today was different, maybe he was not well or straight out angry.

Again he was here for his meeting – back-to-back as always. But as he rushed in the cabin and I knew today nobody is going to get a good ear to listen but a formality done away with in seconds.


But the moment he took his chair there was a calm all over. All the freckles and frown ceded by his ever charming smile. And he sat there listening to everyone open their heart out to him one by one without batting an eye as if he had stilled the time forever. So serene, at peace with himself and the world around. I wish I can attain the same someday. As I open my eyes, I can feel my breath slow down ....I know his charm has worked on me too.

  5. Imagine someone pushed you into the sea and you don't know how to swim. You panic, frantically start moving your limbs all around and eventually you drown. RIP.

    Now imagine the same scenario. Some jerk pushes you into the cold sea, you don't know swimming but you remain calm. You surrender your body, you relax you muscles, limbs, your mind. What happens? You FLOAT.

    Remaining calm and relaxed just saved your life.
