They amaze me. No really, in a good way.
I had two meaningful discussions with two different taxi cab drivers over the last two days. Yes, meaningful.
What precipitated these events? Love.
I consciously made the decision to approach every person I met over the last two days with love. That was the energy I carried. That was the energy they sensed and responded to.
Both of them opened up and asked me questions about why I was there. When I told them I’d written a book and was learning how to market it, the “what’s your book about” was the follow up. That’s when things got really interesting.
The driver who took me to the airport shared how he’d just had a baby boy after having two girls. In his culture, girls are not as valued as boys, but he fought against that mindset. “Observe the mother, and love the daughter” he quoted. I asked him where he heard it. “I’m not sure, I read it somewhere.” That quote changed his life, he said. He’d had a son nine months ago, “Now you can teach him.” He hadn’t considered it yet, he said, but yes, he absolutely would.
We got on the subject of energy. It’s all energy, he agreed. “Money is energy” I said. “It’s currency.” His face lit up. “Yes! That’s it! Energy is currency and we all share it!” Then he said “I don’t usually have these conversations with people. You just made my day.” That two minute exchange (it was a very short cab ride to the airport) made by day too. What a wonderful connection to make with a total stranger in a place so far from home.
We can all connect. All we have to do, is reach.
Love to YOU!
