Are You A Spark?
I had lunch with a friend today whose grand children told her that she is "too friendly." While visiting them in California, she said hello to everyone she passed on her walks, just as she does at home in Georgia. Interestingly, no one responded. Thank goodness it is not like that everywhere!
Just last week, I saw a post on the NextDoor app by someone who conducted a non-scientific poll to see how many of at least 20 people would respond to his smiling "good morning" greeting ... 19 out of 20 responded in kind!
Ralph Waldo Emerson once said that "The only way to have a friend is to be one." I believe the spark works the same way! People often do not initiate the hello exchange. Why not be the spark to ignite the light of kindness in others?
This Week's Focus:
This week, wake up every morning with the intention to make others smile each day. If we could all just try that, what a huge difference it could make at zero cost.
