Let’s turn on the light

Please Note! If you’ve not picked up a copy of my latest book, Waking Up in Winter: In Search of What Really Matters at Midlife, the eBook is on sale for only $1.99 until midnight on Monday, October 8th.  It’s available through most retailers here in the states (unfortunately not in other countries) and I hope you’ll take advantage of this great offer.  You can find it here.

Let’s turn on the light

Yesterday was a beautiful autumn day here in the Northeast and I spent the afternoon in the city enjoying lunch with good friends.  After our meal, we took a walk through the shop-lined streets of Boston and I found this card in a boutique called, The Fairy Shop, on Newbury Street:

What a timely message, I thought to myself as I picked up the card and put it in my basket.  As I walked out of the shop, I wondered what I could do to turn on the light:  Smile at strangers, be overly generous when leaving a tip, let others go in front of me when standing in line, listen lovingly to people so they feel seen and heard.

When I got home, I stood the card on a favorite table so I’d remember to keep the light on.

I share it with you this week so you remember, too .
