I work at a relatively large company where a lot people from the floor share a couple of kitchen. Although I have been working at the same place for a couple of years now, I still don’t know most of the people I work with every single day.
Some people I do know, awkwardly shuffle around the tight kitchen space to prepare their lunch and hurry back to the desk to scoff the food. I do the same most of the time.
Living in Sydney, I am constantly surrounded by people yet I am quite alone. So yesterday I decided to look up and say,
“Hello. How are you?”
My colleague and I chatted for a few minutes; even laughed a little before leaving the kitchen. This happened three times out of three.
Simple two syllable word, “Hello” is like the heat applied to popcorns – a little catalyst brings such a big transformation!
Little interaction with people; both people that I know and strangers brings me so much joy, new perspective on life and gives me energy.
So today, I want to remind myself the importance of being polite, smile and saying “Hello.”
Cheers to letting go,
