Have a fantastic day y'all! Do me a favor and lift someone up today! :)
Spread some kindness...smile at a stranger...open the door for someone.
Today I was downtown leaving a coffee date with a friend, and there was a man working on something near the sidewalk I was walking on. He had a cord that crossed my path and I had to step over it. When I stepped over it, he kindly said, "Have a BLESSED day, ma'am!" AND y'all...I almost stopped in my tracks and hugged this man. I didn't...but I just smiled and said, "Thank you so much! You too!" He tipped his hat and we went our separate ways. I don't know why, but even just a simple hello to someone you don't know can just bring a sense of happiness to your day. There are days where I encounter impatient, rude, and grumpy people and it's just refreshing to see small little acts of kindness every now and again. I challenge you to do that. Be kind...in all of those simple every day things that we do on a daily basis. Maybe hold the door open and wait for that person who is 10 steps behind you. Make eye contact. Say HI in a happy upbeat voice. Spread some positive energy! :) When someone asks how YOU are doing...instead of saying, "good" why don't you say, "Excellent! And yourself!?" I always find people are surprised when I ask THEM how they are. It's the small things y'all...it really, really is.
Things like this can just go a long way.
You know what I want to say right now?
Also, Texas has been getting hit with thunderstorms like crazy lately. My friend Amy posted this yesterday on her facebook page and I couldn't help but smile. I want to be this lady's friend.
ALSO, my friend Chris Perez just launched a new magazine here in Austin called CITYGRAM. You should check it out...it's awesome. If you look close, you might even see a familiar face!?!?!? ;)
