I often joke that I have "talk to me" written on my face, because people regularly come up to me to share their very, very real and intense problems.  I'm really not sure what it is because my resting facial expression isn't very nice (something I've tried to change over the years but I just can't!)

Anyway, I was thrilled to learn that today is R U OK? Day in Australia.  When was the last time you asked someone if they were ok?  You'd be surprised how often just asking this simple gesture can change a superficial, generic interaction into a more meaningful and intimate heart to heart.

Ask someone today, "are you ok?"  And, listen, really listen to their answer.
