We all do it.  Greet people with those automatic responses.

 Hi.  How are you?

Fine, and you?

Fine.

You look nice today.

I like your dress.

Is that a new haircut?

Your dog is cute.

Etc. Etc. Etc.

What would happen if we became fully present with each person we encounter?

What if we started complimenting people for things other than their appearance?

What if we stopped, checked within, and told people why we are truly glad to see them?

Are you ready to give it a try?

I’ve done this a few times. It tends to throw people off their routine at first. Once they realize you are being genuine though, they appreciate it.

Yes, I do try this and it is amazing when you say something out of the ordinary (but true) – you can see people bloom right in front of you because they know it is from the heart.

So true. I love watching them shift into realizing there is a real conversation happening.
