Just For Fun –
I heard on the news of a very nice middle class restaurant that doesn’t charge fixed prices. They merely suggest what the dinner is worth, and you pay what you want. If you can pay the full amount that is appreciated. If you can’t pay the full amount, you pay what you can. If you can afford to pay a little extra to cover the expenses of those who may be a little short, that is encouraged.
Guess what – the restaurant is thriving. They offer great organic food and are opening another location because they are doing so well. They are finding a better way.
There are private schools that allow children to learn at their own pace and in their own way. They understand that some of us learn by listening, some by doing, and some by seeing. Some children thrive in a busy active environment. Some children learn best in a quiet peaceful place. Those differences are honored and each child is given what he or she needs to succeed. They are finding a better way.
There are companies that value their employees and treat them as individuals. Work hours can be adjusted to meet family needs and commitments. Work environments can be changed for maximum comfort and efficiency. Options are given for lunch and break times. There are places to exercise and enjoy nature. There are places to relax and meditate or nap. There are opportunities to become part of a working team. Those companies are doing well and finding a better way.
Just for fun, how about doing some daydreaming? Plan a perfect day in your mind where things run smoothly, people are happy, everyone’s needs are met and life is better than you ever thought it could be. That’s how the restaurants, and the schools, and the businesses began. They were somebody’s dream of a better way.
Now take just one small step toward making one of your dreams a reality – just for fun.
