Saturday Salutation: Joyful Movement at the TSA

I was clearing security this week at the Denver airport, particularly annoyed since the TSA agent had just dumped the entire contents of my purse out and then walked away. Turns out “too many pennies,” can leave you racing for your gate. When I looked up to see an attractive, poised, and confident woman walking proudly through the sensors.

I thought, “Who get’s that happy at TSA there must be something fantastic going on in her life.”

She must have seen me looking at her, so she told me, “It turns out that there is a real advantage to being old.”

If you are born before 1937, you can now keep your shoes and jacket on.

Talk about appreciating the small stuff.

She had joy.

I bet it’s that approach that keeps her looking that good.

Coming Next Week:

All about mentors. Each day will take on a different perspective. I hope you will join the conversation.

Namaste.

  1. Throughout the day, we’re bombarded with negative messages. It’s essential to feed the subconscious yummy thoughts to stay positive.

    Quote from Robin Williams character Sean in Good Will Hunting sums it up: “You’ll have bad times, but it’ll always wake you up to the good stuff you weren’t paying attention to.”
