When you say hi to a stranger and really mean it, what does it really mean??

Well, to me, it means that I have the intention to inspire or uplift that person, just with a HI and a smile. I intend that, you, the one, I say hi to, that your day be bright and if it’s not at the moment, that my Hi, will give hope and that it is an indicator that things are changing.

So, when you say Hi, in this way and the other person does not receive it that way, or even gives you a smirk or even looks away, that’s ok. Don’t take that personally, for that person is on his/her own journey and you don’t know the circumstances. Just know that Your Hi is what matters and it will cause a positive change to that person down the line.
