Meet New People and Be Changed

“I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view.”
― Eric Roth, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Screenplay

Some people will change you.

Let it happen!

Sometimes it might be an inspiring professional talk by John Maxwell or Steven Covey. It might be how your Great Aunt gave you some advice, or your cousin who helped you see things in a different light.

It also might be your neighbor who taught you to be more selfless.
A homeless person who taught you more compassion.
A cheerful bus driver.
Or a post office worker who showed excellent joy- yes! – in taking your package in what might be considered a humdrum day.

All these things can startle you into a greater sense of living a life of love.

***

I highly recommend being positively affected by others… and then you yourself can jolt into joy, and be the model for someone else!

Love, Pamela
