I was sitting in Starbucks this morning, waiting for them to brew my coffee of the day, and I was approached by two women who handed me a flier about some apartments that are being constructed somewhere in the area.

I took the flier to be nice, and they asked me if I happened to be looking. I said, “No,” with a smile, and they said a few other things and left. Then I got to thinking about a few things.

The first thing was their boldness. They weren’t afraid of my reaction to them. They just gave me the flyer. They weren’t sure if I was interested in buying an apartment or not. They just tried to sell it to me.

The second thing I thought about has to do with being ready and my regret for not being ready. I sure wish I had something to give them about the “business” I’m in. I didn’t have anything that I could give back to them to ask if they were interested in something much more important than an apartment.

You better be sure that in the future, I’ll try to be more bold and be ready to give an answer for the hope that is in me.
