If today were your last day on earth, would you live it differently? Do you wonder how others perceive your generous spirit or worry that you will be taken advantage of? Living life with half empty or half full or, last day on earth attitude can change the way you think and more importantly, the way you treat others. Often, their cup is half empty whether you realize it or not. Smiling has become a thing of the past unless, of course, someone is taking a "selfie." Did you know that an open smile can radiate an open heart? It can and it does for every person you meet has a burden or a cross to bear of their own and the simple gift of your smile can lighten their step and improve their spirit. If this were your last day on earth- would you take the time to pat your dogs head, kiss your wife or husband or even tell your children that you are proud of them for their accomplishments at school and within their community? Everyone is in such a hurry these days and focused on "what they have to accomplish" that taking a moment to hold that door, saying please or thank you and even reaching back to help someone who has slipped or fallen down have become "extra steps" that many have turned a "blind eye" towards. If you went to bed this evening and considered the many times throughout your day and the many opportunities to extend your hand to a stranger, would you be pleased with your own answer? When strangers ask why I would create a business not based on earning income, they are often shocked by my answer, why not? Ironically, unless you've been poor, the expense a wedding or celebration is something you may never have had to worry about affording. At a very young age, my twin, Cindy Daniel and I visited nursing homes and brought gifts to strangers who were happy to see us. It was then that we learned the kindness of strangers who have no one were far more receptive to kindness than people we did know. Treating strangers with kindness and respect is free, it doesn't cost you anything. Rather than judging someone simply because they are different, embrace them along with their unique attributes and you will be glad that you took the time to learn their unique stories. Life is fragile take the time to live your own to the fullest by including those around you.
