I have realized depending on where you are, city, urban, rural, state, country, institution or what have you, people say good morning or afternoon or don’t even acknowledge others exist in their busy lives.
On normal times I suppose we go on our merry way with no care in the world. If something great or not so much happens, then we look around or act accordingly for others to notice. Thanks to technology we don’t have to be at the spot to witness something.
I always wonder why in some places people are friendly and hospitable while others are distant and standoffish?
What makes us comfortable or uncomfortable? I know being in familiar places we feel more open to others while if in strange places we are more closed in which is a natural instinct. What could I do to be more open and mindful of others? Could my smile and “good morning” wish to someone having a bad day or a rough start better?
It is about afternoon here in the Midwest in Crystal Lawns Illinois USA. Have a great time wherever you are and take the time to aknowledge life in all its glory!
