My dear friend David Wagner, discovered his life's purpose while at work one day as a hairdresser. One of his regular clients came in unexpectedly for a blow out. David decided to give her an extra long head massage. As he shampooed her hair and lovingly massaged her scalp, he was, as usual, friendly and kind during their time together.
A few days letter he received a surprising letter from the woman. She wrote that she had come in for a blow out because her plan was to commit suicide and she wanted to look good at her funeral. But, because of David's attention and love, rather than follow through with her plan, she decided life was worth living and she checked herself into the hospital and sought help.
In that moment, David had an epiphany. He realized that he was more than a hairdresser, more than a boss to 400 employees at his many Juut Salonspas in Minnesota.....he saw that he was in fact a "Daymaker."
He now knew his purpose in life was to make someone's day, to spread love, to be a love generator.
It's a simple concept with a powerful effect.
If we all commit to be "Daymakers" in our lives, and the lives we touch, the world will quickly become a more loving place.
Below are some of David's tips on how to be a Daymaker in all areas of life.
Make Your Lover's Day
Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,
P.S. In the photo above, David is being a Daymaker for his wife Charlie's Grandmother, June. She will be 99 next month!
