I really feel great today. Maybe it was the chicken fried steak I had yesterday. Maybe it was the sound of the birds chirping as I woke up. Maybe it is the music of the Brothers Four on the Internet. Maybe it was Koki coming up and putting her head in my lap wanting to be petted.
What ever it is, this is setting up to be a great day and a great week. Now the trick is to allow some of the good that I am feeling to flow over to others. I doubt if I am any different than anyone else and when I run into a person with a smile on their face, it puts one on my face too.
Why not try it and see if it works for you. When you check out at the super market today, smile and tell the attendant, “Que tenga un buen diá”. See if she smiles back. I bet she does.
Remember that the bag boy depends on you for all the money he will receive today. He is not paid by the supermarket, the same goes for the young men in PriceSmart. When you tip him, smile and tell him the same thing.
If you eat out, remember that the waitress is working for minimum wage. If she is not smiling when she serves you, smile at her and say “Gracias”. Maybe you will get a smile back. Smiles can be contagious.
Watch for others that can use a smile and a kind word. They are cheap and you can give them out all day and it won’t cost you anything.
Join me and make this Smile At Everyone Week.
I am going to have a great week. I hope you have one too!!!!
