3 Day, 3 Quote Challenge: Day 3

Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone.

– G. B. Stern

I have never celebrated Thanksgiving in my life, so I actually had to look the day up on Google to see when it was this year. The trigger was the many Thanksgiving posts I read on the Reader just a few minutes back. Happy belated Thanksgiving to you all!

Today is the last quote in the 3D3Q Challenge, and this quote means a lot to me given the circumstances I am in. These days, a lot of focus is on team work, especially in the corporate sector. If you are not a team player, you won’t be successful in the long term. An important element in building team spirit is appreciation. A simple thank you when your team mate backs you in front of your superior will go a long way to make that person feel better. And that positivity will bring a smile on both of your faces.

So, if you feel that there is someone that you should have thanked, go ahead and do it today. Being silent about it isn’t much good to anyone.

The 777 Challenge

I was challenged by Leanne for the 777 Challenge. Thank you, Leanne! It was sweet of you to remember me!

The 777 Challenge is a fun challenge to take part. Let me tell you all about it.

THE 777 CHALLENGE GUIDELINES

  • Find your latest work in progress (whatever it is!)
  • Scroll down to the 7th page
  • Find the 7th line
  • Share the next 7 sentences 
  • Are you done? Great! Challenge 7 buddies to do the same. 

Sounds fun, doesn’t it?

The challenge was a little daunting for me at first as I thought I did not have any long work in progress at the moment. Then I found the novel that I had started earlier this month (Note to Self: Get back to it, ASAP! *screaming*). Luckily for me, I was eight pages and about three thousand words into it.

The story is very random at the moment and hence the seven-line excerpt that I share might seem a little random as well. But please bear with me:

Suddenly, the neighbourhood plunged into darkness as power went off. “Awww geez!” her brother shouted and punched the bed.

After a few minutes, he came over to the balcony. Sampriti was sitting on a plastic tool, with her chin perched on the iron railings.

“Damn this power cut, Federer was playing so well.”

Sampriti couldn’t help but smile. Some things never change.

 

Now, get ready to meet my 7 challengers!
