I had 2 people remind me to say “Good morning” yesterday. I have to admit that they were both right. We have become a society so fixated on texts (160 characters), tweets (100 characters), and other sound bytes, we have forgotten social niceties such as “Good morning.”
I remember my mother used to correct me when I wouldn’t say “Hello” on the telephone twenty years ago. Today’s society encourages the rush, the not enough time to be civilized, the too busy to take a breath and say a simple “Good morning.”
I hope we can raise our children to remember to take time out for “Good morning.” Turn off your technological devices and refocus.
May you have a good evening as well.
