As I watched on the news about the shooting in AZ today I thought alot about how people interact on a day to day basis. You see there can be two hundred people in a grocery store and as we walk through do you ever wonder how if any way your life will interact with any of them. The child that runs in front of your cart. The elderly man that you get upset at because he has his cart sideways in the aisle blocking both directions? Or how about that mom screaming at her child that you just looked at because you couldn't believe that she was screaming that loud and using that kind of language in front of her child.
Everyday some how in our lives we touch other people outside of our normal circle. We interact with complete strangers. What if today is the last day of any one of these people lives? What is it that we did to make these people lives just a little easier or a little better? What if we started treating each other just a little better each time we interacted with perfect strangers?
I know that this really has nothing to do with real estate or does it? How many times have we gotten off the phone with that customer that we are just so frustrated at because they are doing something that annoys us or not doing something we asked them to do? What did we do to make that persons life a little easier? How did we treat that person a little better? If that person died tomorrow could we say that we did all we could to make that persons life a little better.
I also know that there is a flip side to this what if this was your last day on earth wouldn't you want someone to think about how wonderful and helpful you were?
