The Journey of Preparation to Singleness, Marriage & Intimacy With God
Day 72: I MET A PERFECT STRANGER
Today I was on a plane and I sat next to a perfect stranger who by the end of my flight we were exchanging numbers and hugging as if we were long lost friends, grieving to be separated.
On this journey of singleness, marriage and intimacy with God, intentionally step out of your comfort zone and speak to another human that is a complete stranger. You'll be pleasantly surprised by how much you will have in common and the opportunities that can emerge from your encounter with them.
With the digital age replacing the brilliance of social face to face encounters, it is getting harder for people to strike up a genuine conversation with a perfect stranger.
My encounter today was a God encounter, not only was this woman's life story similar to mine, her mother was a retired health and wellness speaker, who spoke on a big circuit with former presidents, former first ladies of the United States along with other well known names.
This new acquaintance not only lives in my hometown, she agreed to schedule a meeting for me to meet and learn from her mother ways to increase my speaking engagements to promote spirit, mind and body health.
Talk about amazing doors opening. Just imaging if I would have allowed four hours pass by without engaging in a conversation with her. I would have never learned of a great opportunity that awaited me.
The same is true for so much more. You never know who that perfect stranger can be in your life or who they can connect you with. Who knows the woman you casually greet could be your future mother-in- law, or the man you strike an interesting conversation with could be your angel investor on your new business venture. The limits are endless.
Today’s Lesson: Turn a perfect stranger into a new friend, and you turn the keys to unlock doors to opportunities.
Until tomorrow, find a perfect stranger and start with hello, how's your day going so far.
With Beautiful Love
