“There are two types of people: Those who come into a room and say ‘Well, here I am,” and those who come in and say ‘Ah, there you are.’”
(Thought du Jour from today’s Globe and Mail)
And then there’s the kind of person I used to be who say, “Crap, I don’t know a bloody soul.” Cringe.
I’ve come a long way. I may still think that way but I certainly don’t cringe. I just plough ahead and do my conversationalist best.
While I’ll never be a ‘Well, here I am kind of person,’ I do appreciate their ability to make their presence known.
But I’m kind of partial to the ‘Ah, there you are,’ type. Much more kindness and comfort to be found with these people.
