Are You in Sync With What’s Important In Life?
Last weekend I witnessed an accident in a restaurant parking lot and the ensuing argument between two women. Immediately a quote from Anne Frank came to mind and I walked up to share it with the people arguing. The quote was “When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live in peace with others.” One of the women stopped dead in her tracks and had a look of “Wow” and her body shifted as if she was shocked someone would say something and I went in to place my order.
That same woman came up to me while I was eating and said, “What you said brought me in sync with what’s really important in life. Exploding with this woman only created frustration and stress and didn’t get me anywhere.” She thanked me and hugged me.
