Little Life Lesson: Be Approachable

Today I made it a point to not have my headphones on while walking down the street. And I even slowed down from my usual hurried pace. The result? More people approached me. I recommended a restaurant to a gay brother and sister visiting Boystown from NYC, and later I met a hairstylist looking for work who just moved here from Oklahoma. These little encounters kind of made Chicago feel more warm and neighborly. Today I realized that Chicago never wasn't this way - I just wasn't approachable enough. That changes from here on out.
