.. Usual Mondays..

There is madness everywhere. I see everyone rushing from point A to point B. People around me have an agenda. There are deadlines everywhere. I look outside and the weather is still gloomy after the unexpected Sunday December winter rain.
It is too chaotic but then it is a Monday who can blame them for being chatty..

I see people huddled up in groups. There are all sorts of discussions happening - The weekend conquests. The 'team discussions' where invariably one person gets badgered. The random tidbits from the world around. The whole floor looks energetic - ready to take on everything. Life in general.

I have always envied people who are full of energy. I was one of them a long time ago. It's been a while now. I have sobered down with age. When I see people prancing around it just reminds me of how I used to be -  high on energy.

I am still ruminating over the award for which I was nominated. I didn't win it and like a true sport I announced that it didn't matter. The fact is that it matters and like a nerdy kid I am finding it hard to digest. I have won enough awards in the past 1.5 years (my association with the organization so far). 
I shouldn't really sulk over it but then I guess I am a nerd. A competitive one I think. The life at work is strangely satisfying. I am enjoying my work and what it brings along with it. I think there will be more awards and  more opportunities. This one wasn't mine. 

Every once in a while there is a whiff of coffee in the air reminding me of all the goodness that's still there. Instantly life feels much better on a dull gloomy Monday morning. 
Also, I have music. I tune in to a couple of stations and listen to music all day long..
Here and Here. Every once in a while there is a familiar song and it brings a smile to my face. I slowly drift away to that memory lane and cherish those snapshots, stories and thoughts..
And just when I thought it couldn't get better the hideous outlook meeting reminder popped up.. 
Ah, Mondays!

  1. Haha!I love the fact that you would accept you are competitive and that you are bummed you didn't win. It is one of the most natural positions of life and reactions and yet people lie about it all the time. Refreshing to read pure honesty!
