The Classic Pamela Positive: Say “Bless You” To A Stranger?

“Thought is not reality; yet it is through Thought that our realities are created.”

– Sydney Banks


So let’s talk about how you can create a reality of good!  Here’s what one of my days was like, and how we can create a greater, positive reality. We do this by how we act and think.






I was in my WeWork coworking space tonight when someone behind me sneezed. I was in the midst of doing emails, so I said,

“Bless you!”





Do you find yourself only saying bless you to people when they sneeze right in front of you? Do you only say it if it’s a friend?






Why not extend the blessing to others? If we’re going to have that tradition, then go ahead and extend “Bless You” to a stranger.

And if we want to get extra points in being our greatest selves (even though there really is no point system), then you can say it silently to someone as you walk on your way to work. You can think it when you are buying something from the Walgreens checker on the counter. You can even wish it for the whole world.






So let’s say “Bless you” to a stranger.

You don’t even have to say it to their face. It’s time to embrace the world, embrace people and send positive blessings of peace to everyone you pass.






Now that’s a job in itself, a calling! Imagine trying to silently bless every person you pass on your way to work. It’s a lot to do, so perhaps just make “one a day” a goal.


It’s a great way to bless our world towards greater good.
