It’s amazing what happens when you just smile…

It's amazing what happens when you just smile...

This morning I made a commitment to myself to give out positive vibes to as many people as possible after getting off the phone to my business coach.

I’ve smiled at every person I’ve walked past, initiated conversations with the Dentist in Alhambra, women in the sunbed shop (don’t judge! lol!) and random people in the gym.

It’s amazing what happens when just smile and listen to other people’s stories. Even those who look grumpy or in a bad mood soon light up when you smile and talk to them.

Since Noah was born I’ve learned a lot about myself…

We were all little babies once upon a time, innocent, explorative – viewing the world as a magical place.

Then as we grow older we are influenced by our environment, we are told what is good and what is bad, what is acceptable and what isn’t.

We are judged for being too fat or too thin, for being smart or dumb, we are labelled and stereotyped into groups based on our gender, height, weight and colour of skin.

But when you see past the facade of people and judgements, you realise that we all just want to be loved, and accepted.

I challenge anybody who’s read this post to do the following for the next 24hrs (longer if you can) …

  1. smile at everybody you come into contact with
  2. list 10 things you are grateful for (friends, family, house, food, water, job, kids, whatever means something to you!)
  3. tell somebody who you are close to that you love and appreciate them and that you are grateful to have them in your life
  4. after 24hrs reflect on how you feel (my bet is that you’ll want to do it for the next 24hrs as well!)
