I had one of those moments today. Where the words all tumbled out, jardon-esque.
‘It just…makes my heart go fast’. I heard myself whispering back.
What an idiotic moment?
The pause in the conversation was palpable. Oh ground, swallow me up, please.
‘Sorry’ I stumbled on. ‘I don’t know how else to explain it’.
The question? ‘Why do you want to do all this?’
All this? I hear you ask.
Yes, voluntary work overseas. Child health in developing countries. Help where help is so desperately needed.
Because…because… ‘It just…makes my heart go fast’.
And as I willed my coffee to turn into a vortex or black hole with depths unknown, I heard a gentle reply.
‘Don’t be sorry…it was very…passionate’.
Yup. That pretty much sums it up. Now why didn’t I think of that?!
Enjoy this little clip from an all time favourite movie of mine, Kal Ho Na Ho. ‘Listen…Live…Be Happy…Smile…You never know…Tomorrow may never be’.
