    7 short stories shared by Satya Nadella [ CEO Microsoft ]

    LOOKING BACK
    I interviewed my grandmother for part of a research paper I’m working on for my Psychology class. When I asked her to define success in her own words, she said, “Success is when you look back at your life and the memories make you smile."

    LOVE CONQUERS PAIN
    After I watched my dog get run over by a car, I sat on the side of the road holding him and crying. And just before he died, he licked the tears off my face.

    TOGETHERNESS
    As my father, three brothers, and two sisters stood around my mother’s hospital bed, my mother uttered her last coherent words before she died. She simply said, “I feel so loved right now. We should have gotten together like this more often.”

    AFFECTION
    I kissed my dad on the forehead as he passed away in a small hospital bed. About 5 seconds after he passed, I realized it was the first time I had given him a kiss since I was a little boy.

    JOY
    When I witnessed a 27-year-old cancer patient laughing hysterically at her 2-year-old daughter’s antics, I suddenly realized that I need to stop complaining about my life and start celebrating it again.

    KINDNESS
    A boy in a wheelchair saw me desperately struggling on crutches with my broken leg and offered to carry my backpack and books for me. He helped me all the way across campus to my class and as he was leaving he said, “I hope you feel better soon.”

    SHARING
    I was traveling in Kenya and I met a refugee from Zimbabwe. He said he hadn’t eaten anything in over 3 days and looked extremely skinny and unhealthy. Then my friend offered him the rest of the sandwich he was eating. The first thing the man said was, “We can share it.”

    Celebrate Life with Gratitude

    Thanks @Mistt @shravs3 @nandinimithun for your fb's. It was pretty intense for me too and that's how it got registered in my mind. The dog episode, mother on her deathbed, someone hungry for 4 days offering to share the half-sandwich he just got were all overwhelming, to say the least. I realized the power of words in each of these 7 short stories.
