Everyday we encounter people. Some of them we are familiar with like co-workers, classmates, family and friends. Others are strangers who we come across at restaurants, gas stations, salons, parks, etc. It is amazing how a complete stranger can make you feel. A friendly smile can brighten your day. A rude comment can set your mood on a down hill spiral. Do you ever think of how you make other’s feel? Do you care?
Happiness is contagious. I feel the same way about positivity, compassion, and encouragement. I strongly believe that the vibes I give off are a good indicator of what I will receive in return. I believe in karma and treating people the way you want to be treated. I think if more of the world felt this way and acted it out on a daily basis we would be a happier, healthier and more successful planet.
I meet new people all the time. I put on my best smile and treat each of them with respect. I challenge whoever reads this blog to do the same. Just think how much it would mean if you walked out your front door on a day when you didn’t feel so great about your situation or yourself, and everyone you came across smiled at you with the intent to help you feel a little better. Just think if you were experiencing a loss or a break up, what it would mean if strangers seemed compassionate and understanding without even having to say a word to you. Would it change your mood? Would it make you feel better?
To everyone who wears a smile, treats people with kindness and strives to be an example to others… I applaud you and personally, I think you are AMAZING!!!
