Do you find it hard to smile? At family? At friends? At Strangers?
I came across the post, Changing The World 🙂 One Smile At A Time, It is an older post, but it made me stop and think? Do I smile at people?
I realize that I do smile. Smiling comes easily to me. I like to smile. I like to smile at strangers or at friends I meet. I don’t even think about it. A smile just comes. I love when I get a smile in return.
I started patting myself on the back. Hey, I am making a difference in the world, one smile at a time. But then I stopped. Yes, I smile at friends and strangers, but what about my family. Those three boys that live with me?
As I thought about it…I heard myself saying, “Put this away…Time to eat….what are you doing…go get the mail…” and none of them were said with a smile. I don’t think I smile at my boys very often.
Why is that? Why is it easier to smile at strangers than it is to my family, those I love the most? So I am committing to smile more in my own home. To show how much I really do love and enjoy my life. Yes, I am going to change the world one smile at a time, and it begins at home.
Won’t you join me?
