One – to – One ~ NOW!
Quench Your Thirst for Connection
A sweltering St. Louis July afternoon, I
enter the State License Office. Need I
say more? I decide to Pause.
Past experiences of License Office
delay tell me that I better get out of my
own way. In stepping back I can greet
this as a New Moment!
I have now allowed room for a helpful way
to see this to enter my mind while
renewing my driver’s license. A lovely
woman standing behind a podium
greets me at the door with a friendly
smile. We sweaty customers crunch our
paper numbers in our waiting.
Fanning herself the woman behind the
podium blurts out, “Does anyone have
some water? I am so thirsty.” I respond,
“I’d give you my water bottle if I hadn’t
already drank out of it!” She changes
her mind, “I could sure use an iced tea.”
“How could I be truly helpful now?” I ask
LET INSPIRATION GUIDE
Inner Inspiration guides me to buy this
woman an iced tea when I swing into
Chipotle around the corner! I choose to
follow. The License line went
amazingly swift and so did the lunch line
at Chipotle. I get 3 iced teas – 1 for me
and 2 for her sweetened and unsweetened.
Twirling back into the License Office I
hand her the 2 iced teas. She is
surprised and truly grateful to have her
thirst quenched and she shared the
extra tea with a co-worker.
QUENCH YOUR THIRST FOR CONNECTION.
PRACTICE THE PAUSE!
