Hey, guess what? We have a randomly selected winner from yesterday’s giveaway! Congratulations to Ségolène in Brussels, Belgium! Shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and she’ll hook you up with a free seat in her new class!
This is my random thought for you today – straight from the pages of Live Good. I love this little book. It’s a habit for many of us to walk in a hurry, keep our heads down, and definitely keep to ourselves on the elevator. I get that. Don’t talk to strangers, right?
Here’s the thing. You have the power to turn someone’s day around. I’m not saying we should all go out of our way to make a BFF out of the person behind us in the checkout line at Target. But would it hurt to just turn around and smile? Would it hurt to keep our head up and offer a simple, genuine “hello” to those that we pass on the sidewalk, instead of watching the ground? Could we make more of an effort simply say hi to those we know – and those we don’t?
I think it’s a good idea and I’m going to work on that myself.
Part of cultivating a good life is being the first to say Hello.
