Down low to up high
I was in no mood for anything when I left the house this morning. It was a bit chilly, it was 6.10 AM and I had been working during the weekend. I was just waiting for my cab to take me to work again. I noticed it was quite sunny, no clouds at all, yet somehow that failed to impress me.

Cab came, got it, left for work…Same route, actually one of the same route, each driver has his own favorite one. Was just sitting there, worrying about everything I need to do this week, my two tests and all that.

Well my driver was in an awesome mood, loud music, him singing along, being totally ironic to everything, telling me what a wonderful day it was…I couldn’t say what exactly was it this life loving and enjoying attitude that completely changed my own mood, but it really did! I started looking at the outside world differently, enjoying the sunshine, the open sky, the shop windows and everything else there was to enjoy. So thank you! Really! You gave me the most amazing present on a dull Monday…

    the same happened to me, except that it was me who got the other guy depressed. it wasnt a cab driver though, it was an orthopaedic resident, and i, skillfully enough, managed to push him to surgery in a terrible mood. on the other hand, i got better!

    except for this other thing i dont feel like talking about, i would have smiled all day!

    Every mood is contagious... depressed people depress you, happy people make you feel happy... I love contagiously happy people. I have met some and I've always realized it's not only superficial.

    I like it when taxi drivers tell you stories. I got a taxi today and heard an interesting tale involving the police, knuckledusters and a substantial amount of compensation money. Eye opening.

    enthusiasm can be contagious, and at just the moment you need a bit of encouragement someone will come along, or something will happen to let the sun shine again :D

    hope the rest of the day went well for you my dear ;-)

    keep well...

    Rain, that is quite true!

    Motasim, I don't think depressing other people is a thing to take pride in!

    Irina, depressive people are rarely sucessful in spoiling my mood. I try hard not to let them. But when it comes to happy people, I am more then open to their influence.

    Safyia, it is true, they can tell you some things you have no idea of. Such as who lives where and how much it costs to live there...

    Bart, actually my day continued to be quite great! Bright, sunny, relaxed and all that! :)
