“Everyone is born with a light…”

I have always believed that everyone is born with a light, a goodness within them. For many that light glows bright, but for many, sometimes because of choices, or life, or circumstances, or whatever, that light can get a little dim, perhaps almost gone. For many, having someone just notice their light helps their light to grow. That is what Richard’s project is about, at least for me —slowing down a little and taking the time to look for and nurture the light—in both ourselves and our fellowman.

“An opportunity to learn from others and their experiences…”

The best thing I like is your style, it not only shows who you are but at the same time it gives an opportunity to learn from others and their experiences and the versatility of different lives.

“Richard shares of his world and his place in it with the people he loves.”

“Makes me smile.”

Terrific! Inspiring! Motivating! Makes me smile.

“I now desire to join in my own way…”

You not only make me smile for the moment but, as all good things should, I now desire to join in my own way. Thank you!

“You hit it on the head…”

I think you hit it on the head for me: “Every time I have swayed from the path of optimism the walls have appeared.

“Thank you.”

I’d rather be over-optimistic in all things than live a life of doubt, pessimism, and fear. Thank you.

“Positive, inspiring, uplifting…”

I read your words about the ‘almost’ daily struggle to find your next interview inductee but as a word of encouragement… I believe they have all been Divine Appointments. Each of your posts has offered such positive, inspiring, uplifting comments from your interviewees. Somehow I think you are being led to just the right folks!

“We are all connected…”

Thanks for sharing, Richard. I enjoy your message, perhaps in part because your encounters seem so in sync with what I am going through myself. You remind us, again, and again, we are all connected. Blessings.

“My life…is one in which you have changed…”

You are an inspiration to life. And my life, especially, is one in which you have changed—to better me as a person, and our family as a whole. Thank you and God bless.

“Thank you for sharing your world…”

The universal synergy is amazing. Thank you for sharing your world and bringing all of us together!

“Honest, beautiful, and true! WOW!”

 “Dude, this is legit!”

At the risk of sounding like a complete hipster, allow me to say… “Dude, this is legit.” Color me hooked!

“What a fabulous idea… break down the barriers.”

“…if we only paid more attention…”

Isn’t it amazing how our paths are often directed, and how we often meet just the people that can bless us (and be blessed by us) if we only paid more attention, and stayed attuned?

“The smallest things can brighten your day immensely.”

I must reach out and tell you how inspiring you are to me. I now make it a point to reach out and make these small gestures to strangers, because, as you said, “The smallest things can brighten your day immensely.”

“Wow, this hit me right where I needed it to land today.”

“I am another person who has been touched daily by your project…”

I’m another person who has been touched daily by your project… think I started about day 120. I am honored to have been on a journey of love and caring and know that it has enabled me each day to breathe, reflect, and put the lessons into practice… sparking more caring and more love as the actions brought forward by reflecting on your message and passing it forward.

 “WOW! What a difference you have made, not only in your own life but also in the lives of others.”

“…it has truly inspired me personally.”

Your willingness to go out and do these things, the message it sends, the inspiration; I want to let you know that it has truly inspired me personally.”
