Hello- what a wonderful word indeed

Today, unlike some past Mondays, I will not mention the Monday blues. Today will be sunshine and rose petals. For, why not? If the day ends up crapping out, then so be it. I will have at least tried to be somewhat sunny.

That’s where the word “hello” comes into play. Have you seen the movie “Crazy People”?. It stars Dudley Moore and it’s from 1990. Not sure I’d call it a classic but it has its moments. One character in the movie loves the word “hello“. He sings a ditty about it throughout the movie. He notes how “hello” can frame your day as well as your interactions. At the end of the movie, he gets to say “goodbye” and it’s a liberating goodbye; after which he gets a new “hello”. Anyway, the plot of said movie is not important. What is important is the thought behind “hello”.

The word “hello” introduces you to stangers and friends alike. Think of the many songs that use such a word, i.e. Lionel Ritchie’s “hello“. It opens up a possibility. It sets you up for more. Try saying it today, as often as you can, and see what doors and paths will open for you.
