I want to encourage you to talk to the homeless.

Imagine walking through a world where no one acknowledges your existence. And if they do, it is only to belittle or humiliate you. Imagine the loneliness, isolation, and depression. Imagine not knowing what, or if, you will eat today, or where you will sleep tonight. Allow yourself to step into those shoes for a moment.

Now imagine a smile, a hand shake, or someone stopping to ask how your day is. Just an acknowledgment of your very existence can be profoundly impactful.

You may or may not have a couple dollars in your pocket. You may be leaving a restaurant with a box of leftovers from an abundant meal shared with friends or family. Hand it to someone who looks like they could use a meal. Smile and ask them how they are.

Exercise the golden rule we learned in kindergarten, do unto others as you would have others do unto you. Not only will you make a difference, the positive energy you exert has a way of making its way back. If each of us took a step, imagine the wave we would create.

Wishing you all the abundance in the universe, and the willingness to share it with your neighbor. Happy Murphy-Cam!
