People watching….at it’s best…..perfect this time of year!
Are you a people watcher? I am! I love when we are on vacation, just sitting back relaxing, and people watching! We are ALL so unique in our own way, so why not get pleasure out of it!?!?!?! What a great way to get inspiration! From styling clothes or hair, to what NOT to do! Be honest here! We have all seen someone and thought “did they look in the mirror” before they left the house! Or maybe, what was she/he thinking!
No, I am by no means perfect! In fact, I might even be one of those “what was she thinking” or “did she look in the mirror” people! I try to be very inconspicuous as much as I can, but it doesn’t always work that way! I do look in the mirror, don’t like what I see, but know there’s nothing I can do about it, so go about my day anyway!
But you all know what I’m talking about! Admit it!
People Watching at it’s Best
What better time to people watch than this time of year! It’s shopping season after all! From the frazzled, in a hurry, get out of my way people, to the so organized, laid back person, The Christmas holiday season brings out the best and worst in each of us!
Black Friday shopping! Need I say more? Any one who is out that day is looking for the bargain, that one PERFECT must have gift! The ones that find it, are the ones with the smiles on their face, but still in a hurry to get that next thing on their list! But then there are the ones that can’t find it, or someone just grabbed the last one! Those are the not so happy ones!
Everyone is still fun to watch! Maybe just to learn what to do and what not to do!
’tis the Season!
It IS that season, for sure! While it can bring joy, it can also bring heartache and pain.
This is actually my favorite holiday, but I often find myself stressed! And depressed, too! Especially the closer it gets! Not having a loved one with you can bring out the sadness and depression in all of us! Not to mention lack of money for that special item, or lack of time (or energy) to do all the things you feel have to be done! And notice I said FEEL like it needs done. Yep, the world will keep going around, whether it’s done….or bought….or cleaned….or whatever!
Back to the people watching
So, back to the people watching! When you’re out and about this holiday season, watch people! And think about what they might be going through! We’ve all been in our own situations, and while they are not pleasant, they still happen!
So when we run in to that person that looks like they’re ready to break, or fall apart, try to be understanding and patient. We, as observers, don’t know what the other person might be going through! Smile, offer a kind word, or lend a helping hand! Do what it takes to brighten up their day! It will do wonders for yours as well!
Black Friday shopping can bring out the best AND worst in us! Which is why I do a lot of my shopping on line, or before this day! But I still like going out that day! Sometimes it’s for that bargain that can’t be passed up! Once in a while, it’s just to be part of the day! Or maybe, because I have to go to work, so all I have to do is deal with traffic!
What are MY plans?
I don’t know yet which one I will be! I may end up being “the stay at home because I don’t feel like dealing with anything” me! Or i might be looking for that deal! If I DO go out, I plan on taking some of my inventory along with me, and help brighten up someone’s day that way! And if it isn’t something THEY would like, maybe it’s one last thing they will have to spend money on this year!
If there’s one thing being in direct sales has done for me, it’s this! I want to be the bright spot in someone’s day!
So if you see me out and about, smile, lend a helping hand, brighten up my day, or at least be patient! I may just be one of those having a bad day, too! If you see me searching through my bag, it just might be to find that one thing to brighten up YOUR day!
