Morning Hustle…..Each morning millions of people wake up all over the world. At the same time, millions of people are going to bed and ending their day. We tend to think only about ourselves and our lives. We are so focused on how the world around us affects us that in our day to day we often forget that we are all connected into one big system called the world. Things we purchase and consume come from all over the world. Many minds, hands, and people have thought of, created, and shipped the items we use on a daily basis. Think about the shampoo, conditioner, and soap you use in the shower. The toothbrush and toothpaste you clean your teeth with. The food you eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The clothes you wear, the car you drive, the road you commute on. Each of these products has a business, supervisor, manager, and employee attached to it. Each person has a home, a family, a life, and problems. When we leave our homes to hustle out to work each morning let us be mindful of what creates the world around us….you and I. When we interact with each other let us be kind, caring and patient. We have no idea why the lady at the coffee stand is a bit grumpy with us. We have no idea why our coworker is a total jerk this week. We don’t know if someone just received a cancer diagnosis, been served court papers, been asked for a divorce, their child was arrested, their parent just died, the spouse cheated on them. We just don’t know what they are going through. In your morning hustle be the light. Be the cheerful one. Be the kind customer, and have a nice day. Be grateful for the days you wake up and life is good.
