About a month ago, I wrote on the relevance of being present. Present to who is around you. I try and work on this every day. I want to share with you a couple of awesome people I encountered because of being present.
As I walked into the Crinzi and Gullo Jewelry store recently, I overheard a conversation a customer was having with one of the store managers, Angela. It caught my attention because I heard the words cancer treatment and Roswell. I did not want to be obvious I was listening to them but could not help but hear that the customer was fighting cancer. Now I could have walked out and been on my merry way. Many would have suggested that I do just that. However, I believe there are no accidents in life. It was god’s plan that I not only meet the customer but also Angela. So, I simply said, I overheard that you are a patient at Roswell, how are you responding? He went on to tell me the positive experience he is having. I let them know that hearing positive results help me in the journey I am on. As Angela listened, she shared with me that she planned to launch Pure Positivity. You can see me in the shirt below. “How you think is how you live”. You can pick these shirts up at Magpie, Hamburg, Cameleon, East Aurora and Cameleon, Ellicottville. Angela’s Positivity is contagious.
The other awesome encounter took place a week ago in Portland ME as I checked into the Westin. I got out of my car at the hotel and I asked the bell man how he was doing. He replied “awesome”. While I was tired and wanted to get to bed, I sat there and talked with this young man about the blessing of being awesome. You might remember the blog on being awesome. I found his response awesome.
If you are PRESENT, you are not alone, and you can impact others. As you are PRESENT, remember you can either be one that brings people up or bring them down. Angela and the young man at the Westin in Portland ME are bringer uppers.
There are three things that I work on each day, so I can fully experience God’s blessing he has in store for me. Those three things are:
- Reminding myself of what I am Grateful for
- Be truly Present for those you are with
- What are you feeding your mind, body and spirit?
I am so blessed to be PRESENT today. Think PURE POSITIVITY and be awesome today!
