I found this through Google images when I was looking for a smiley face and I just loved it. I’m not even sure where it’s from, but it’s a more accurate depiction of a workday sometimes where it takes more effort to be THAT positive person in a sea of disgruntled/disillusioned folks. You may annoy some of them, but that one person you cheer up will make this endeavor worth it. I promise.
I’m not claiming to be the merriest person alive nor do I smile 24/7 — but I like happy things. Maybe a bit more than others because I look for them online and I like to share them in simple images, timeless words, uplifting news that tug at heartstrings, trigger fond memories, and touch your soul. Because I like smiling. And I LOVE making people smile. I know that I cannot force people to be positive. It’s not something you can buy off the shelf or download on your smart phone (there’s no app for that yet), but positivity can be shared through good vibes from one person to another. And as my fortune cookie message reminded me, if we’re willing to spend the energy, we all have the power to make ourselves and the people we love smile. Sometimes, that’s all we need to turn a day around. Blog Archive
