Let the GLOW FLOW!
“We set out on a course in life, to live it fully by chasing our dreams, supporting our families and we all cherish our friends along the way.
Though often times along our way, tough things happen to some of us, whether it is a wrong turn, a not so good choice, an accident, a traumatic event or a career ending of no-fault of your own.
We all have had “Events” come into our lives that knock the wind out of our sails, we have all hit at least one brick wall at the end of a path and we have all said “Good-Bye” to someone we love and cherish.
Today let us realize our own shortcomings, our own hard luck times and look out in the streets. May you be able to “See” beyond the individual holding a sign, sleeping on a sidewalk, hustling for a dollar or walking…

For the Seinfeld fans out there, you probably remember the show above where George Costanza decides that every decision he has made in his life turned out to be wrong. So, he decides to do the opposite of what he would normally do.
For example, when approaching a woman, he would normally make himself sound wonderful and stretch the truth about every area of his life.
