What Would Bobby Do – WWBD
This week, suddenly, without warning, we lost a dear friend, a member of our team and an associate. Bob Miller was loved by many, followed by many and emulated by many. Bob’s daily Gratitude videos and his Gratitude Success Show were legendary. Today I want to talk about WWBD, or What Would Bobby Do? (By the way, WWBD is now a registered hashtag, #wwbd).
I was at Bob’s house for several days this week. I left Bob with a hug and “see you soon” Wednesday morning and drove home. On Thursday morning I received the dreaded call, Bob left his “earthsuit” behind sometime during the night. He was gone!
I am writing this blog post to remind us of several things. Here we go:
Never, ever take anyone or anything for granted
How could I, or any of us know, that Bob would leave over night without so much as a “goodbye” or a warning. Damn it anyhow but it’s just not fair. Yet we must assume and know and believe his mission was accomplished and it was time to go home. Bob you will be missed.
Always take the time to hug the people you care about
Imagine the terrible feeling if I had walked away Wednesday morning without stopping to give Bob a hug and let him know I cared about him.
Be grateful for what you DO have
Bob personified, taught and lived gratitude. It is so important to appreciate all that life has to offer and remember to wake up every day to gratitude for you never know when it is the last day you will wake up. Worldwide 151,600 people leave their bodies behind every day. Bob and I were planning several things. He had started to write his book. Some of his music was still in him. He had no clue that Wednesday was his last day on earth.
Take the time to smell the roses NOW!
You may not be here to smell them tomorrow and they might not be here either.
Help Your fellow Man
Bob took food almost every day to a homeless man named Andy, The Guru Of Fiesta Island. He stopped frequently and gave change to a beggar on the street and to others asking for help. Bob genuinely cared about people, he loved them and he respected them.
So What Would Bobby Do? (WWBD)
He would tell us to love one another as he has loved us. To go forth and spew gratitude and teach and practice gratitude. He would ask us to take our last banana and give it to Andy and to practice random acts of kindness and most of all, to do all we can each and everyone of us, to make the world a better place.
Bob, my dear friend, the world is a better place for having you in it. Too bad you had to leave so soon. I know you were just getting started and so we will endeavor to carry the torch of your legacy forward.
We love you Bobby Miller. You are missed!
