I just shared an elevator

I just shared an elevator with a stranger, and got myself a major attitude adjustment:

Him: “How are you this fine, fine day?”
Me: “Oh, fine, fine. And you?”
Him: “Can’t complain. I try never to complain. It doesn’t do any good. It doesn’t move you any further along the path.”

I chuckled, while I’m thinking: Shit! He’s right! I have been complaining my ass off lately! What the hell am I thinking??

You know, he probably says that same thing six times a day out of habit. Sometimes the things we say make a difference. I’m feeling a helluva lot better because of something a stranger said in passing.

And the fact that he was stunning didn’t hurt either. Ahem.
