There are people in your life that for your own reasons you take for granted and generally ignore. This could be a friend, a loved one or a total stranger…but you know who they are.
This happens to everyone.
Pick someone today, and make a point to be nice to that person. Don’t be phony. Be nice. Be kind. See what happens from there.
This reminded me of the way jennimi and Michael take notice of people. They do so in a supportive way that makes you want to have conversations with them. Effective leaders have a way of engaging you in dialogue that makes you want to share your thoughts. Overall, this strengthens what you end up talking about. I like to think the higher lesson here, about being nice and conversing, stands as: we can/should expect higher levels of civility from each other. Doing so, we move in newer, bolder directions as we explore issues close to our hearts. I wouldn’t say fixating on that outcome is healthy though.
