In today’s fast paced, instant gratification, super size me world, where people’s lives are broken down and validated into bite size tweets, it’s real easy to forget to take a long deep breath and remember what life is really all about…it’s about people. It’s about people and how much we all really have in common. We all have hopes and dreams… we all have fears…we all go through struggles and make mistakes, we all want to be heard and acknowledged…but most importantly, we all want to love and be loved…

It seems like our days are spent being surrounded by other people whether it be at school, work, the gym or the grocery store. But how well do we really get to know these other folks? Are we making an effort to do so? Or are we too busy to even notice?

You know…we all have stories. We all have unique experiences that make each and every one of us different from everyone else…and sometimes when we listen to other people’s stories, it has a way of making our stories richer and more valuable…

How does listening to other people’s stories have a way of making our lives and our stories richer?  If we really paid attention we would find many similarities in their lives which might mirror ourselves and give us insight into how we can live our lives in a more fulfilling, inspired and enjoyable way.  We might also find that they have gone through many of the same trials and tribulations that we have.  We might even find that they have many of the same interests.  There are many reasons why we may have something in common with someone else.  We just have to do a little digging to find out.  I can assure you it will be worth it.  

So the next time you give your money to a cashier at the store, drive by some folks asking for help on the side of the road, or make a deposit to the clerk at your bank…just remember that they are people too and more than likely share many bonds, fears and interests with you, and by getting to know them your life may become richer and more satisfying.  Connecting is everything. ..
