Brighten Your Day

Brighten Your Day

Still in the Chicago O’Hare Airport. I love people-watching.


It’s one of my most favorite things to do. Y’know, when you’re in an airport, which is different from being in a bus terminal or a train terminal. But in an airport, you see all kinds of people. You see people going and coming from vacation…you can always tell the ones coming into Chicago, arriving…they’ve got flip-flops on and a little tee-shirt and their beachwear, coming from someplace very warm. And sometimes you can connect with people that are maybe going towards a sick relative or somebody that they need to care for, and you see all kinds of people.

Don’t you love people?

Y’know, I just love people. Don’t you love people? I mean, if you don’t love people, you might think about getting over that. Think about what the real issue is…because people are people, and this a planet of people. You get the opportunity to accommodate that. Sometimes, I know, we get into a spiritual funk. We look at the kinds of people that we are being surrounded by and think, why in the world did I create this?

When We See The Holiness…

But then when we see the holiness that is within them, when we see the good that is within them, everything changes. So as you’re walking around in your world, or going to an airport, or flying to see us, maybe, look at the kinds of people you meet and just ask yourself, how can I brighten my day with this interaction, and in the same process, brighten their day, and then, put it in the Comments line how you did that and what happened. That’d be fun. Put in the Comments line what happened when you choose to brighten your own day and in the process, brighten someone else’s day. Namaste y’all, namaste.

    When I am at the grocery, I smile looking into their eyes, or I compliment a stranger. I think everyone appreciates a compliment

    This morning I was at Star Bucks and a lady was searching for her order among several orders on the counter. She said softly : My name is Maria…\” hoping someone else might help her spot her Latte. I turned towards her and said in Spanish ( as I detected her accent, ) Mucho gusto Maria as I shook her hand, I am Izabelle. She started laughing and the clerk said to her: here is your coffee. It did brighten our day!

    I was walking through an airport once after a sad goodbye and a young guy yelled at me “Hey you dropped your….smile.” Which did indeed brighten my day and cause me to smile and laugh.
