“Look people in the eyes, smile and say something nice.”  We used to tell our kids that all the time when they were little, teaching them to see PEOPLE, not just strangers as we went about daily business.  I was thinking about that on my run this morning.20130817_100950

Today I counted 21 people I made eye contact with, and exchanged a “good morning” with.  I lost count of those I only exchanged waves with.  That’s just one of the things that’s great about running outdoors.  People.

You don’t have to go running to find people.  Remember as you’re busy going place to place to look.  Really see people, give em a smile and say something nice.  No one wants to be invisible.  You never know how far that exchange will reach –or how much a reward you get by the return smiles!
