When was the last time?


When was the last time you gave a smile or compliment to a complete stranger? When was the last time you received a smile or compliment from a complete stranger? When was the last time you (for those with children) remember letting the kids run around the neighborhood to play…knowing that the neighbors would all keep an eye out on them? How about even hearing about a community coming together to help one of their own through a crisis?

Community has changed so much. We used to not even hesitate to smile or compliment a stranger or flinch when we received any. Now it seems as if people assume you must either want something from them or are a touch out of your mind! We used to work together as a community to watch over each other and our children….now if you correct somebodies child to protect or teach them safety you have an angry parent on your hands! Now communities are more just a group of individuals keeping to themselves. 

There are still some amazing people out there that reach out to strangers, not afraid to watch over others children or pets and not afraid to be there to support neighbors going through a crisis….but you just don’t hear about it as much anymore. It’s such a shame that todays society has become so “me” oriented. One day things will come full circle and we’ll need to come together and work as a community again to survive. Don’t wait for that day…start practicing now so you’re ready! Reach out to a stranger….smile or say something nice…even if they look at you like you have 3 heads! Just do it….it feels good and who knows….we just start a new craze 🙂

  1. I love smiling at strangers,
    although I find it quite challenging to strike up a conversation although many times i have wanted to, purely because I’m pretty shy.
    However, recently I have been finding that I want to go out and reach to strangers and get to know more people and help others and I’m excited at challenging myself and maybe coming out of my shell a bit more
    Having a stranger smile at me or talk to me always makes my day so why not do it to others
