Hello everyone, I'm writing this blog because I'm having a very hard time grasping the fact that times have changed and people are more and more unfriendly to each other. Growing up in a neighborhood were everyone waved to each other and people would watch your house when your were away on vacation, makes me wonder what happened why have things changed so.
This past week I was working on my garden in the front yard, I waved to every neighbor who passed by and out of 10 only one person waved back. Wow those sure odds I wouldn't play at the casino. Why is a friendly wave so hard to do? Neighbors are so very important to a neigborhood and I wouldn't have picked this one if that was the outcome I was to receive.
I work in the industry of customer service so for me it's automatic to wave or smile, why are people so into themselves that they can't take 5 min to look around and be thankful they have a home a car and a neighborhood that 30 years ago would be a dream to many. This world would be a better place if people just weren't so into themselves. What an earth are they teaching their children. I would hate to grow up 20 years from now. Why can't neighbors walk over and talk to eachother, hang out have a beer together once in a while, why do they have to be so self absorbed that they stay to themselves.
I'm not saying all neighborhood are like this but a lot now days, people move in and move out so quickly. Smiling is contagious so I encourage people to smile at everyone you see, you will find yourself in a positive mood and positive things will happpen. SMILE AND WAVE TO YOUR NEIGHBOR, why you ask because it the right thing to do!!!!!
