So what does it take to survive your day?
I don’t know that many people think about what other people have to endure in their day, because most people get so wrapped up in their own daily grind.
I know that I rarely think of how another person’s day is going unless it is a friend, or family member and/or something has happened to put that person on my radar.
Ask yourself… when you are in a hurry and you stop to get gas, coffee from starbucks, or a drive thru – do you ever take the time to smile and say thank you or how are you doing today?
I didn’t used to – but have been lately. Admittedly, it does not make me really think of how they get through their day – but it does help me get through mine.
Of course, some of them look at me like I am a total loon, but most of the time, you can tell that a little act of humanism and ‘niceness’ has taken them off guard and you can almost see a change in their stature and mood. Try it some time!
