    Perfect PO workout weather yesterday! I’m feeling a little philosophical this morning … yesterday while waiting for my car to get inspected, I was in the waiting room with an older man. I don’t remember how the conversation started but it did and it was so lovely to pass the time talking to him about his interesting life and family history. It made me really think about how so many of us (me included) are constantly on the go and so attached to our phones. I could easily have just spent the time on my phone but instead chose to interact with him. I don’t know if it had an impact on his day, but it definitely impacted mine. Let’s slow down and connect to the people we bump into, say “hi” to the person you pass on the street, slow down for those pedestrians in the crosswalk, and stop and smell or admire the flowers! That is all. 🙂

      Yes! It’s so important to look up and smile and interact with live people. Looking at our phones will not change our lives in any significant way but as you experienced yesterday, connecting with others most certainly will! Thank you for sharing Nara.
