Be a Part of the Conversation..,

Posted on: August 31, 2013

  When I was in my twenties i carried around a book called 

I also carried around it’s sister book

Both are available on Amazon….

I now have two  children in their twenties…

I still have these books and will probably never part with them…I do however wish to introduce my  children to the wonderful world of getting together with friends or family and asking conversation starter questions.  

 I was happy when this week I went to A.C. Moore craft store and found this at their register

I have had so much fun asking these questions with my niece and children… We couldn’t stop asking questions and kept it going for a much longer time than I anticpated and for that reason I was inspired to share this experience with you My Dear Readers!  

So a New Feature for Saturdays on my blog is going to be 

BE A PART OF THE CONVERSATION

So we begin right now with the first question…

“WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WISH YOU COULD PASS ON TO EVERYONE ELSE?”

My answer to this was : Kindness Matters 

I stopped in Burger King where there was a line ten deep and the manager was fumbling through the ordering process.  By the time he got to three people in front of me he had hit his stride and was executing it perfectly.  After he completed my order I said, ” For this not being your regular job, you got your groove on and nailed it!”  He was shocked but laughed and stared after me in amazement.  After getting my order and grabbing some napkins he made sure to get my attention and thanked me telling me to have a wonderful day.  

This is nothing new for me, I strive to acknowledge the efforts of cashiers or others in public service positions.  I love seeing people’s reactions and spreading kindness to the world.   I think I get as much happiness from doing it as the receiver gets. 

Your turn , My Dear Readers, Join in with your very own answer to this question and know that by doing so you will bring much delight to my heart and great conversations when I share them with my friends and family.  Come back and read what others say and share them with your family and friends if you are so inclined… The more of you who share the bigger and better this gets!

Dance like there is no tomorrow…nobody’s watching (or even cares)!

Love this one! I see so many people at music festivals who just sit or stand there.

Put people first. I have never regretted spending time with someone important in my life over doing almost anything else, and especially over getting caught up in the internet, TV, ect. You never know when people in your life are going to be gone, and you’ll regret not learning from them.

Perfect! I learned this so young when my father died when I was just 13.

Never repay rudeness with rudeness. It only puts you in a bad mood, and you never know what horrors a stranger is living with. So cut them a break! I once read a lovely saying along these lines, and the sentiment has stayed with me. I am grateful that my 17y.o. daughter works at Chick Fil A, and declined to work at Mugs & jugs with her best friend!

A perfect piece of wisdom!Congrats to your daughter in making a choice that shows she has self respect.
