It was a Sunday night and the second time since I started going for a night walk after dinner. I had finished ten rounds of our society’s park on the previous night. During the walk, I received a what’s app message and my phone vibrated. It was video one of my friends sent me with a short line that said, “Stare into the eyes of this person appearing in the video for 25 seconds.”
I stood near to a tree taking a break from my walk and watched the video. It was a prank video. Just after 25 seconds, a ghost appeared in the video and made a shrill cry which almost ruptured my eardrums. And I was afraid for a moment. I started my walk again while my mind was still thinking about ghostly things. And just after a while, god knows what made me remind of my society’s security guard, who was mysteriously killed last year. And I didn’t think about him for all these 380 days after he was killed, but only today when I was on a night-walk after having my dinner. But do you think I’m a coward? I’m not. So, I continued my walk and just after a few moments, I heard a mysterious sound behind me.
Okay, now listen! I may be blessed with tons of courage, but that was my last round of the park, and it’s been 20 days after that incident, and it’s very unlikely that I’d ever, at least for a year, gather courage again to go for a walk in that park at night.
But what wonders me is the order of things which happened. I was happy. I saw a ghost video on my smartphone; then I remembered the security guard who was killed last year, and then I heard a mysterious sound from somewhere behind me. And a day before everything was fine in the park which led me to the completion of ten rounds of that park at night. How and why?
Pictures can express a thousand words. Don’t they? Besides those words, they do also evoke emotions, and those emotions should not be ignored. Various studies have shown that the people who see the kind of images or videos which evoke happy emotions in the morning manage to keep themselves happy throughout the day. The reason being a happy soul attracts positive vibes and when you’re sad, you invite negative vibes.
When you see a photo, it’s just a matter of seconds that you stared at that photo. But the impression which the picture left on your heart and mind won’t abandon you for a long time as it didn’t me.
Let me show you a photo I clicked of my nephew a couple of years back and you tell me what emotions does that picture evokes in your mind.
Now, let me show you another photo, which I clicked last year, and you tell me what’s the scene this time.
Did you notice the difference how your mind reacted? And that’s the reason you should always smile when you find someone holding a DSLR in front of you. So that whenever in the future you see your pictures again, you get some positivity and feel happy.
By the way, I’m yet to find out what emotions do pout pictures call in our mind. If you find out, please let me know.
