Meaghan and I have been reading “The Power of Positive Thinking” by Norman Vincent Peale (I would highly recommend it).
One of my favorite ideas from the book is the idea of saying a little prayer for the strangers we pass by and interact with in our lives.
He tells the story of praying for the people at the train station along the way while riding the train.
Today, make it a point to pick out someone along the way and say a silent, positive prayer for them.
Pray for their health.
Pray for their family.
Pray that they will find peace.
It is a great way to remember that we are all in the same boat.
We all worry.
We all fall short.
We all need help.
We all could use a little more peace.
And the best way to find what we desire is to look for opportunities like this. Opportunities to spread love and joy to others, in whatever way possible.
Make it a great day.
PS – I will be out of the office next Tuesday through Friday. If you would be interested in sending out the daily attitude email one of those days, let me know.
