In Reason to Believe, Bruce Springsteen sings ,”At the end of every hard-earned day/people find some reason to believe.”  What’s your reason to believe?

My reason to believe,is if I’m sincere at what I’m doing, I’ll be successful. I mean I’ll feel better when my effort is appreciated.

In my childhood, I thought all my efforts at being helpful was always sneered at as if I was putting on a show and nothing I did or said was ever taken seriously by the crowd around me. It was a kind of disappointment I failed to grasp.

What I’m going to relate are trivial things, but back then , I felt wonderful.Once my brother who worked in the tea gardens, came home with a  suitcase full of things, he handed it to me and said, “Ranu this is for you.”

I opened the suitcase and lo and behold, I found all kinds of goodies, chocolates, candies, biscuits in attractive boxes. I shared all of it with my other siblings.

One day I asked the same brother, every time you come you bring a suitcase full of good stuff, and say,”Ranu this is for you.”

What will you say if I keep it all and decide not to share?

He had a broad grin on his face and replied, “I know you won’t do it.”

I felt so good realizing, my brother trusts me.

One of the things I value most is trust, I try not to disappoint anyone. When I see people faking, it breaks my heart.

After a  hard days work, we do need assurance that we did well, it makes us feel happy to know our work is appreciated.
