If there is a closed door, knock, it might open. Or it might not. But you will never know till you knock.
And if you knock, and there is no answer – maybe you need to knock harder. If you knock again, and it still remains closed – maybe there is nobody there. If you knock a third time and there is still no movement – surely, nothing is there. Or maybe they don’t want to open. So stop disturbing.
‘ If someone isn’t meeting you half way… leave them be.’
It all depends on how you feel on the inside.
Today was one of those Thursdays when i did not have a late meeting at work, and when i decided to go to Toastmasters. Today was once again a time when i listened to the speeches but chose not to get out of the comfort zone. Today was once again a day when i did not speak in front of the audience… but i did introduce myself, so something i did do ;)
Today’s Toastmaster session was different, as it celebrated the romanian ‘Dragobete’, our own Valentine’s Day. One of the speakers re-enacted one scene from ‘Romeo& Juliet’ with his girlfriend… and actually took it all the way and proposed, right then and there in front of everyone. It was a great moment, one that made people realize that no, romance is not dead. At least not for everyone :)
After the talks, a small group was discussing clothing choices, and how they knew a person who wore lots of colored clothes, and who was all joyful and irradiating happiness all the time. ‘It is all about how you feel on the inside’ – they said. It then reflects in all you do.’
True. Very true.
Wearing bright clothes is not enough. One has to be bright and happy on the inside too.
