Make today a better day for someone you don't know. That's right--a stranger. When you're at work, at the grocery store, shopping in the mall, at the gym, walking your dog or whatever it is you do today, stop and say something nice to a stranger.
"I like your shirt." "Your haircut really complements your face." "You've got a great smile." Just think of something nice to say. Or open a door for a stranger, or slow down in traffic and let them merge into your lane if they need to. Don't be disappointed if they don't thank you (especially if they're in their cars and/or on the phone), just do it because it's a nice thing to do.
Life is short. Let's take a little time to be a little bit nicer to one another.
Here, I'll start.
Thank you so much for stopping to read my blog today. I appreciate that your time is limited and the fact that you took a few minutes to take a look at what I wrote really made my day!
Now pass it on, please.
Excerpts from Leroy Cooper's memoir as told to me during conversations that took place during the 2 years we knew each other. I also write humor, flash fiction, celebrity interviews, real and made up stories--see if you can guess which are which.
