Help Wanted: Smile at a Stranger


Help wanted!!

Tomorrow, my small contribution to a better world will be to:

SMILE at a stranger, and be soooo bold as to provide a genuine “hello!” as I walk by.

 

Sounds easy enough. That means that we probably don’t put enough importance into it’s impact. It’s probably a matter of prioritization versus challenge, because it’s easy enough I would have expected more strangers to smile at me today — yet, they probably would say the same to me, so one of us has to just “break the chain” and do it.

What’s the worst that can happen?  They ignore my hello and receive my smile with a scowl?  Any pain I feel from that is more on me and the unnecessary expectations I assign to the exchange.  Maybe that same person will be, even ever-so slightly, more inclined to smile back next time, or the ‘time’ after that.

Your help is much wanted, and your smile is much appreciated!!! 🙂
