This holiday season I hope you’ll take a moment to savor the time you have with your family. We all get wrapped up in the craziness of the holidays and forget that ’tis the season to be jolly! Today I was at Costco, and the lines were crazy – I was 1/3 the length of the store away from check out. I was beginning to get antsy and then I realized that if I wanted to check out that I would have to just deal with it – in that moment, my demeanor changed, I ‘forced’ myself to smile and within a moment, I actually was so much happier. I turned around behind me and complimented a lovely woman wearing gorgeous shades of royal blue. Her lilting Irish accent was so soothing, I tuned out all the clutter/clatter of the store. We got into a conversation about Indian cuisine and before I knew it, it was my turn to check out. We exchanged numbers and promised to connect after the 1st of the year – presumably to cook together! So, in the span of 15 minutes, not only did I change my attitude around, I made a new friend!
Go ahead – try it! It’s infectious. And oh – it costs you nothing – but earns you so much good will!
S M I L E!
Its good for your soul & its good for your world!
