As I wrote in my column The Grand Canyon:
A chance meeting between two people can have implications for those people for the rest of their lives.

You never know when someone will enter your life and change everything.  It could be today.  It could be tomorrow.  Don’t take any encounter you have for granted.  You could be walking down the street tomorrow and run into a complete stranger and they may become your best friend, your greatest confidant.

Think about that the next time you want to lash out at someone you don’t know.

Maybe they cut you off in traffic.
Maybe they said something cruel.

Instead of LASHING out, why not REACH out, as the teacher did in this video called:
Make a Difference
.  As this teacher discovered, the student’s reasons for being sullen, obstinate, distant were rooted in his past.  Reach out and offer comfort to someone who is being cruel.

You just may discover a tender heart lies within after all.  Maybe a broken heart that just needs someone to care, someone to understand, someone to listen.  What can it hurt to give love instead of hate.  Give love instead of anger.

Can you make a difference today?
Can you shift your initial M.O. from lashing out to reaching out.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
