We live in a society where things are too serious. Seriously?
Things just goat serious!
Often you walk past another person lost in their own world. The fast paced drama of life causes a sad smile in acknowledgement to your hello. Personally, I try greet as many people I walk past and lighten their burdens by taking their mind off their problems with a wise crack comment, joke or anything else pertinent to the situation unfolding at that moment in time.
It is a moment shared by strangers in passing, work colleagues, friends or family. A little light and laughter can go a long way to changing a persons day. Certainly, there are many people that could care less. To them I say, each to their own and I respect them for who they are.
We each have our own thoughts and burdens that we carry. Sometimes just out of habit. You do know that we can release some of these burdens right? Granted, many we can’t. An empty bank account or wallet does not put food on the table for a hungry family. At times, all another person needs is to be acknowledged. A simple hello. A human interaction. This breaks the routine and mind set and lets our mind wander free of any burdens holding us down, even if it is just for a few seconds.
So to those out there that uplift others, well done! Don’t change no matter what. Keep on keeping on. As long as you are considerate to another persons feelings and their walk in life, there is no harm in light banter to add to another’s day. It certainly does not take away from it. Unlike this goat packing heat (who would most likely take the clothes off your back.) Things just goat serious! Such an absurd statement and meme but one that makes me laugh 🙂
