Motivational Monday – Dec 2nd, 2013

In honor of Thanksgiving this past week, today’s motivational thought comes from Arlo Guthrie’s Alice’s Restaurant.

And three people do it, three, can you imagine, three people walking in
singin a bar of Alice’s Restaurant and walking out. They may think it’s an
organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day, I said
fifty people a day walking in singin a bar of Alice’s Restaurant and
walking out. And friends they may thinks it’s a movement.

And that’s what it is, the Alice’s Restaurant Anti-Massacre Movement, and
all you got to do to join is sing it the next time it come’s around on the
guitar.

With all of the power we have in today’s age, all of the different social networks we all belong to, both digital and in person, imagine what kind of movements we can start. Even if it is something as simple as getting 49 of your friends to join you in waiting to hold the door open for someone with their hands full who is the other side of the parking lot; giving a thank you smile, handshake, or even buying a hot chocolate to the person who is volunteering to spend their time in the cold ringing the bell for The Salvation Army.

What movement can we start to help make this world a better place?

In closing:
You can get anything you want, at Alice’s Restaurant
You can get anything you want, at Alice’s Restaurant
Walk right in it’s around the back
Just a half a mile from the railroad track
You can get anything you want, at Alice’s Restaurant
