Saying Hello to People

I must say Friday was a rather special day to say the least. I usually walk down to Arizmendi in the morning and grab a muffin or just even to go for a walk... But as I walked down the hill Friday morning I was going to experience something very different. I was walking down the hill and this person walking up greeted me with a firm "Good Morning" greeting... hummmm I thought to myself ... that was nice of him to say that ... well I keep walking down the hill and not too far from the bottom this other woman with a huge smile looks at me squarely in the eyes and says "Good Morning" ... I don't know these people and yet they are all greeting me this morning... I am now turning to look in the park on the left to see if there is some kind of friendly gathering of some sort... but none to be seen... This is something I want to do more of in my life. So I decided to do the same on the rest of my walk to Arizmendi ...

Passing it on... while I was in Arzmendi there was a woman next to me waiting for her drink and she started talking with me (maybe she also attended the event in the park !) ... anyway she was pointing out to me the headband that one of the workers in Arzmendi was wearing and then I say to the worker - as she was pouring my latte ... You konw I just had the strangest experience... 2 complete strangers came up to me and said good morning ... and she said to me that it should just be like that and that we should not consider it strange...

So lately I have been greeting more people who I don't know when I walk past them... I wonder what they are thinking when I do!

Hi Vincenzo, I am cruising the blogs looking for any information on Relax At Home and landed here. Although Saying Hello to People is interesting and got my attention, I will add this knowledge to my storehouse of information. I never know where Relax At Home will take me. Have a great day!

Hi Vincenzo, I am enjoying some idle time and looking to see what Help People will bring up. Saying Hello to People is certainly interesting and informative. Help People is a good word to bring into the conversation. Great post. Enjoy your day!

Hi Vincenzo, it’s late in the evening, quiet and peaceful. This is good computer time for me. I thought I would check on Be Your Own Boss and see what came up. Saying Hello to People is something that is interesting to many people. I will also spend a little time checking on Be Your Own Boss. Getting late, have a good evening.
