Do you hate to smile? It’s too much work. No one cares anyway. It’s a waste of time. No one ever smiles at you. Or for that matter, back at you if you do?
It’s true, at least some of it, I know, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do it anyway. You never know, it might even remind someone themselves that they’ve forgotten to smile that day. Or, just maybe, it will remind them to take a step back from their busy day, stressful day, depressing day (you never know) to receive a smile. And that might just make their day. We have no idea what any one person is going through at any given time.
Now, you might say, why is it my responsibility to brighten someone else’s day, what about my day. Well, I say, give it a try. It doesn’t cost you anything, no extra time, no money just a few muscle movements that might even brighten your day in the doing so. And if that still doesn’t convince you then do it for yourself, to know that you brightened someone else’s day and that was your doing.
So, I know it sounds cheesy, but just try it, practice it.
Smile at yourself.
Smile at your loved ones.
Smile at your pets.
Smile while you’re on the phone.
Smile to people walking by.
Smile to your coworkers.
Smile to the bank teller.
Smile to the cashier.
Not working? Think of a happy thought. Something that’s happened in your life, something you dream will happen in your life, something that’s happened in someone else’s life. Still not working? Read the comics, look through pictures, find cute baby animal pictures online.
And if all else fails….. There is always tomorrow. We all have bad days and you’re allowed to just remember not to stay there!
So, go out there and smile at the world!
