Are you one of those people who smile a lot and happily chat with strangers, such as shop keepers or people on the bus; or are you always busy, serious and looking down when you are out and about? I must admit I used to be the later for most of my life! A hectic city worker, always rushing from one place to another.
I have changed and it still surprises me how beautiful short encounters with random people can be. When I bought a coffee last week, the woman who served me commented on my smile. We chatted, I commented on her name “Patience”, which was shown on her name tag, and shared my thoughts on the power of names. She loved that and confirmed that she was indeed a “patient” woman. We both laughed – and I left with a free coffee!
It only takes a few seconds to exchange positive energy with a stranger. The more I do it, the more it becomes my natural way of being.
Who do YOU want to exchange energy with today?
