Blink of an Eye
"What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined... to strengthen each other... to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories." ~George Eliot
Two people unconnected by any thing in common cross paths one day. They see each other, they might acknowledge each other, they might even talk. They might just pass, but they see each other. There it was, a connection that takes place in the blink of any eye.
It is a connection which is instantly a good or a bad one.
It is a connection which creates a memory in each person.
Change occurs in that moment for both people. It is a change that can have a lifetime impact on the other. And whether we intend it to or not, the connection creates a memory. But what kind of memory are you leaving for others?
I have always tried to make the outcome of this connection a good one. I am not always successful at it. Such is life, but the point being that the memory we each have of the event creates an impression. It might be a pleasing one; it might be a not so good one. Yet we each individually play a part in what it will look like.
We can either create a great memory or allow it to be a bad one. Sometimes you will try and it just comes out all wrong. The reality is that you have the ability to effect what the memory will look like. Your impact, how you look, respond and talk to other people will greatly affect the connected memory.
Make the memory a wonderful connection; one that will bring something greater into another person's life and yours.
Stay inspired my friends.
