24 Sep Susan’s Sound Advice #29
Yesterday, while stuck in traffic, I noticed all the people walking across the avenue. Most looked harried and hassled, and most did not look up from their cellphones. One person looked into my car, and I smiled. They seemed perplexed, but smiled back. If you would like to test the impact of a smile, why not set out today
with the intention of smiling at every person who crosses your path.
You’llnotice how most, if not all of them will smile back at you,
and each time you are the recipient of a smile, you yourself will feel a
tiny bit better again. The effect will multiply as the day passes, with
each smile of your own making you feel a little bit better and each
smile of someone else adding to this powerful effect. Each hour will
become a very” happy hour” indeed.
