Friends, There’s a girl at my office.
Her name is S*** and she’s just 30 years old.
And three months ago she lost her husband, an absolutely unexpected event in her life.
I still remember her coming to me and saying, Sir, I’m resigning. I’m going back to my native place to my parents, Mangalore.
I nodded my head in agreement.
Sometimes it’s very difficult to respond in these kinds of situations.
But when I looked at her, she was completely broken in her eyes.
I thought she would take months and years to come back into our lives. And when I said goodbye, I thought that is the last goodbye I’m saying. I might not be meeting this lady again in my life.
She Came Back
But within a month, my HR Manager came to me and she said S*** has applied back. She wants to join the Techizer again. I said, wow, strong girl.
And within a month she was back on board. We have one activity at the Techizer called Leap.
The idea is very simple. Every week, Thursday from 4:00 PM to 4:20 PM. For twenty minutes we spent time together and one pre-decided person stands on the stage and performs.
It could be dance, speaking, stand up, any personal skills.
Just out of curiosity, I asked my Manager who’s performing next week at Leap and she said, S***. I said, “Wow strong girl.”
She Made Others Laugh
And, on what she’s going to speak. And my Manager replied “How to stay happy”.
And I attended that leap session. She was so animated on the stage and she actually made props to make us laugh. She wanted to make a very simple point that in every situation in our life, it doesn’t matter what kind of situation that is. You have to make a choice to stay happy or unhappy.
The only reason I’m making this video, because when I look around, I see few people when they face even small problems in their life, not as big as this, even small, they go into their shell.
Happiness Is a Choice
They sometimes just give up and become unhappy. We all have problems in our life. I have; you have.
But next time when I will face a problem in my life, I will remember there is a girl, somewhere her name is S***. She’s 30 years old. Three months ago, lost her husband within a month, came back to work, and then stood in front of 70 people with a smile and taught us how to stay happy.
