since my last post, i have had many encounters with people that have rocked my world and have completely changed my mindset going into the week. im telling you, these interactions can change everything. im living it, trust me. think whole heartedly when you encounter someone who may have looked up to you in high school, show them love, give them more reasons to look up to you. what would make this person look up to me? im just a normal guy. Well the fact that youre showing them whole hearted attention can change their life as well as change yours. this happened to me just yesterday. i was told by this person after having a short conversation, 'ill see you, and good luck in.... just life' that simple valediction rocked my world. show others you care and i promise you theyll show you the same. just the other day i was driving through campus around noon and was stopped at a light and couldnt help but notice the mass amount of students walking around. all this to say, it blows my mind that so many people can be in the same exact place, yet headed in some many different directions. the greatest benefit of everyone being different, in my opinion, is that the knowledge that can be shared between just two people could be enough for a huge change. and today, the day prior to valentines day. i enter walmart to an enormous crowd of people. the same thing runs through my mind, so many people going in so many different directions. knowing that its not possible for me to interact with every one of these people, i made sure to speak to everyone i came in close contact with. i often ask myself if there is a way to show love to big crowds of people like this. i have found the answer. im doing it right now. this blog is the answer. if i can convince at least one person through these posts that human interactions can change the world and that person goes and convinces two other people this, then step by step we are getting closer to achieving the goal of interacting with every person we can encounter. with this being said, i simply ask you if you would please share these posts. if you find the content of this somewhat motivating, or useful, i encourage you to interact with others by passing this blog on to others. As always the comments section below is a great place to interact with one another as well as all social media platforms, and even just communication face to face. I challenge you for the rest of the week to intentionally interact with the people you see everyday, whether it be in the break room at work, the halls of your school, the person bagging your grocery. the time to act is now. i challenge you to do this, and let me know how things go. thank you for your time and stay tuned. much love
