I work in downtown Jacksonville. I typically walk to lunch and/or breakfast. The best part for me is that there are almost no screaming children. I absolutely do not understand unruly children. I also don't understand parents who are perfectly fine with letting their children being so ridiculously loud!
Anyway, walking around downtown is so nice because there are so many different types of people. The most amazing thing to me is that there are actually people who will either not even look at others on the street, or refuse to return a smile. I mean really, what is so absolutely terrible about your life that you absolutely cannot return a simple smile? It is uplifting to see others smile. It is also much easier to smile than to think about all the stress you have going on in your life. So next time you're passing a stranger on the street, smile and see what happens. You just might be surprised.
