Long lines and bare shelves at the grocery store can test our patience, stoke fears of not having enough, and even create jealousy and resentment towards those who beat us to the toilet paper. They also have sparked playful, casual conversations in grocery lines that we might never have ever had before. Most people are talking and joking in line with complete strangers! That is actually a breath of fresh air for me.
We all have choices to make when we are disrupted. What if we all used disruption as a catalyst to bring out the best in our creativity, selflessness, and love for each other? Give it a try today. Let’s purposely replace the dark clouds of fear and bitterness with the bright light of selfless love that unites us and brings hope to the world! Take the high road. The high road always pays off!
