In my first real experience putting myself out on the ‘net for everyone to ‘see’, I hope it isn’t so weird. But I hope that in some way it can be used for the benefit of mankind. One of the things I enjoy is making lasting impressions.
Whether it’s telling someone my name (Lee J–which solicits more unique comments than I can count: ‘That’s unique!”, ‘I’ve never heard that before’, ‘How do you spell that?’ or ‘What?’), acting up a little (which is more like smiling and joshing people), or just being sincere, I love it.
People are so enjoyable. Each of us is so different and it is so interesting to find out what each person’s story is. We are a conglomerate of all our past experiences and mine certainly determine who I am.
Though I’m young (21) and a student I still like to think I have some quality or something that is mine alone that can change the world. And maybe that seems a little bold or out there, but if can smile at one person a day whose day is brightened by it, I can personally affect 365 people a year. And if that one smile can be passed on to one person, double the number are affected.
And if you want to get really nasty into numbers (and I used to) just keep having that smile affect someone. I never know what reaction I might get, but not too many people get upset at me smiling at them.
And that’s just a smile (and it’s not even that impressive–I couldn’t get a job from it), so if I had something else to share, an idea, or an experience, how much more impacting are those on people?
So with that intent I’ve created this blog: to put myself out ‘there’ to help more people than I already hope I am helping.
