Are We Thinking Positively Today?

Earlier this month, a coworker went to Starbucks. No biggie there...She went through the drive thru to get coffee and had realized she had forgotten her wallet. Rather than driving off, she pulled to the pickup window and explained what had happened. The lady in the window told her not to worry about it and gave her the coffee. How many times have you had that happen?

Do you ever eat somewhere and have a really pleasant experience?  Do you take the time to let the manager know how good your waiter/waitress was? Do you always thank someone when they have been helpful? Do you hold the door for that person behind you? From my own experiences with all these situations, I get in too big a hurry and sometimes forget to show common courtesy.

My point here is to stress that we should think positively in all our experiences and stay away from the negatives. Life is far too short to look for the bad in folks or everyday experiences.  Positive feedback should always be shown in everything, even in social media. We are all life long learners and can benefit somehow from every person's paths we cross daily.

  1. Starbucks is truly a magical place. :) I would say pour out a little Pike to remember me by - but that is a waste of awesome coffee.

    Take care AKW.
