Streak of Optimism

The beginning of 2022 is very similar to that of 2021. Rising counts of covid patients occupies most of the headlines. Fear of lockdown seems to be looming around. To breakthrough this fear, I decided to go around the house in search of optimism. I came across the money plant. The sight of this plant brought some good memories.

This plant brings out the creativity. My father planted it as a creeper around a tree and it worked. One fine day he saw it planted in water in a glass bottle. He was so motivated that he did the same at home also that too worked. Later on I found out many of my friends have tried it with different kinds of bottle from ketchup bottles to custom designed glass bottles. In another instance, one of my colleagues had a small money plant in a tea cup sized pot. She had kept it on her desk in office. Whosoever came to our floor noticed it. People often came to her desk and inquired if it was a real plant. Many even asked where she got it from.

It moved me so much that for a change I started googling about this plant. To my surprise I found this plant creates an optimistic atmosphere. This not only enhanced my knowledge but also cheered me up as if a streak of optimism had appeared like the stripes on the leaves. I realized just as the streaks make the leaves beautiful similarly the good times and bad times makes our lives beautiful. This is a good gift. With all the tension in our surroundings, let us take a break from gadgets and admire our surroundings. One never knows when a streak of optimism may appear and make our day.
