On my way to work this morning, I tripped a bit on an uneven piece of sidewalk. I caught myself and immediately laughed out loud which was super weird b/c normally I'd cringe with embarrassment. I registered how different that was for me. A man standing just ahead of me to my right, had noticed me stumble and laugh and as I past him, he too had a big smile on his face "I've done that too" he said. "Those things just come outta no where eh?" I said back, smiling. I kept walking and a security guard about 20 feet along had seen it as well as my interaction with the first guy. "Have a good day!" he said with a big smile. "You too!" as I kept walking. I gotta stumble more often. And loosen up. And not take life so seriously. It was so spontaneous and fun how 3 strangers in our own orbit shared a lighthearted connection for a moment.
