Good morning ♡

The Pursuit of Happiness

Date night. For those of us in long term relationships, especially with kids, date night is like gold. We get to dress up a little (or a lot depending on the type of date it is), & we go out with our loves, having fun and forgetting about the day to day routines of life. We enjoy spending time catching up on things that we don’t always get to, all while remembering why we love the person we are with. But what about those of us who are single? We go out with our friends, meet other single folks who may not nessecarily be looking for love but just want to meet new people and spread some joy. Enter Thomas C. Knox. At subway station platforms in New York, he sets up a table with a board game, a flower in soda bottle, & waits. On the table, a sign reads, “Date while you wait.” Not looking for love but rather provide a friendly outlet for people to connect with others, closing the gap withing humanity. How inspiring is this?! No strings attached; just come & sit & have some friendly conversation while waiting for your train. How often do we hear that a simple smile to a stranger can make a drastic change in the life of another? We never know what another person is going through, but random acts of kindness can make a world of difference where we live in world where we walk with our heads down in our phones, straight faced, & feel more comfortable to communicate more through text than voice or face to face. Show some kindness today & spread some peace wherever you can. Make a date with the one you love & recomnect in ways that may have slipped by the wayside. Or, take a courageous step & ask out the person you’ve been crushing on for the longest while but haven’t had the courage to do. They may say yes ♡☆♡☆♡ Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ♡ ☆
