On Being Proactive

Updated: Oct 27, 2022

It was Monday morning, and I was waiting in line to pay for my groceries.

When my turn came, I greeted the cashier a jolly “Good morning!” only to be met with indifference. As if the cashier didn’t hear anything. I’m sure she did.

After I paid for my groceries, I didn't want to say thank you. But I did. (That didn't come naturally easy.) Still, there was no response.

I’ve decided years ago that I was going to be a proactive individual. My actions won't be based on the response that's given to me or the response that I expect. (Still a work-in-progress but moving on.)

After all, the other person might be going through tough times, and I'm not going to compound her problems by complaining.

It’s one of the best times one can pray for another.

And I did.
