Inspired By Friendliness

I love it when I am out and people just come up to talk to me, I think I have a very inviting spirit about myself. This woman name Linda, whom I didn’t know before today was walking out of the store and saw me; she said to me for no reason “I am surprised that I am so cold, being that I am from Canada”. I responded, by say I know what you mean, I am from Ohio”. She was older than me and way cooler; I thought to myself, I can only hope that when I get to be her age I will be like that. I was amazed at the fact that she stopped me to have a conversation! In that moment while she was talking, I noticed her confidence and how it made her a great person in her life. She was very humorous and lighthearted; it was so nice to talk to such an open person. I think that it is important for people to feel comfortable enough to talk to people that they don’t know. By doing this it can help the person feel good about themselves and they themselves will be thankful that you brought some fun into their world. I know this is how I felt and it had such a lasting effect on me as a whole. Throughout our conversation she told me that she set out a plan to have a minimum of 3 people whom she had never met before and then have a conversation that could lead to a long lasting friendship or just for that moment. I asked what made decide to do this, she said “life was short and I wanted to meet people and help them. My job wasn’t doing it and volunteering wasn’t cutting, everything was 1…2…3. I wanted to help people in a way that reach their hearts and warm their soul”. Wow, what a powerful feeling that she had. Talking to people and finding comfort in the conversation with them gave her what she needed, reassurance. Making her feel and know that she was amazing.

About danaib322

My name is Danai Brown and I’m a university student on a life-long quest to discover all of the good in people as well as learn the behavior of many. I have come to realize that there are many people that say that this world is “hopeless or pointless”. I want to be able to show that there is hope. I personally believe that there are miracles and these miracles will change the behavior that the person will display. Finding the positive is the easiest, but the negative you will have to work harder to find. I have been told that it is the other way around; but I have to disagree. I want to bring to my blog an insight of hope as well as teach the things that I have learned. Sharing is the key to the success in changing a negative thought to a positive one. By following my blog and I can assure you that you will see the world in a different light. I was born in the Dayton, Ohio area but have spent the majority of my life in Atlanta, Ga. I currently attend South University-Savannah campus; I am studying for my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with an emphasis in clinical and community Communications and Public Relations. I have been blessed with two amazing parents, two sister, two brother, and four talented and astounding kids. I am the happiest when I am sounded by people that I can get to know and care about; as well as those that I can help make a difference in their lives. I have had the opportunity to participate in many acts of service, and I continue to do all that I can do. All I want to do is leave people with hope in knowing that someone cares about them. I have come to understand that life is an eternal quest about knowing oneself. I have decided that it was time to challenge myself, to rediscover my hidden traits, talents, and tendencies. This is where I am at right now, I have been able to grow and learn more about who I am and become comfortable with me. I think the biggest disease the world suffers from in this day and age is the disease of people feeling unloved. This is also another reason why I want to do more for people. I want to give the give of what I have found, how to love my self. We can all learn from each other, I hope to be able to do that with this blog. Feel free to leave a comment or share an inspirational story, I welcome it. You may even have advice for me to improve my blog, please contact me on my Facebook account at: http://facebook.com/danaib1 I would love to hear from you!
