The sun sets on another day…
We as a race hunger for the positive affirmation of another. Simply put, we like to be liked. There is nothing more please to most people than being appreciated, liked, and feeling like the world is a better place because we are in it. Right? Places like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and dozens of others play on this need and help people feel good about them self, good about what they do, and allow them to live their private un-life in the middle of their life.
What is it though that we need more than anything? In my opinion it is a smile.
A smile can melt away a hardened heart, or make a cold day into a warm feeling day, it can make us feel better about ourselves when we are down, and make let others know we are feeling positive when we are sharing. A smile is something that almost anyone responds to positively. (Unless it is a snarky smile, leave that alone)
The trick is to let people know you are smiling, and just acknowledge them without becoming that scary person that is smiling and looking like you know something about the next door neighbors best friends sisters brother in law. Just be nice.
At any rate, maybe a smile and a kind word won’t cure everything, but it would be a good start.
So as the sun sets on another day, let’s put on our smiling faces and show people the world can be a better place, let’s use the power of a smile, not just to show them, but to make the world a better place, and enjoy our lives in the process too, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and smile…
