Motivate Me Monday: Three Simple Words


Three simple words: "How are you?"  Yet three profound words that can make a difference in someone else's day.  I've been asked this by someone recently who truly meant the words....and it showed care and concern.  Have you ever been asked that by someone, though, who didn't really care to hear the answer and just kept on walking before you could even blurt out, "Good"?  It doesn't always mean the same thing, does it?  These three words can either make a positive impact in someone's day or a negative impact.  What am I getting at?

I challenge you to look around you this week, whether it be in your own home with your husband, asking him how his day was....or whether you ask your friend from church....or whether you ask the grocery clerk in Walmart.  Just say those 3 words, and really mean them; not only that, but stick around to hear the answer.:)  "How are you?"  You never know; you may start a life-changing conversation.:)

Sometimes the best lessons are so simple that we overlook them. Thanks for reminding me to be concerned for others and to mean what I say. I look forward to reading your MMM every week Mel.
