Crossroads @ Midlife?

Crossroads @ midlife? No, in this case it’s crossroads as in “school crossing”.

Jogging past a school crossing guard yesterday morning, I said, “Thank you for volunteering”.

She replied back, “Oh, I get paid, not much, but it is paid”.  We both smiled because of the busy location and time of day.

I ran another 15 seconds and doubled back to talk to her.

“Do you know what kind of opportunity you have to say something encouraging to each child (maybe 30+) that crosses”?

“Be a leader today”.  “Make a new friend today”.  “Do something really nice for someone today”, I gave as examples.

What if everyone got off auto-pilot on their jobs and started fulfilling their purpose while they did their job?

Ain’t mid-life great?
