During my visit to the grocery store today, I struck up a conversation with the cashier; we began to share about some of the things we are thankful for. In sharing, she said that she had found a wonderful church and considered them to be family, especially since she had just relocated from Michigan. I said to her, “May I ask what brought you to Las Vegas?” In her continuing gleeful spirit, she said “I am now an “empty nester” and I decided to do something different, something “out of the box.” As I would like to consider myself an “out of the box” kinda girl, I decided to follow Janet’s lead. Instead of taking my usual route home from the store, I took a different route. The new way home was more scenic and less traffic; for me less traffic is everything.
Although I didn’t take a huge step as Janet did, I found that a subtle change can make a dramatic difference. Start the conversation today, learn from others – share with others, keep an open mind, be willing to explore, be adventurous, be bold, do something different, try something new!
Go ahead and live your life out loud!
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. II Timothy 1:7
