Smiling

Strangers are funny people. How many times do you pass by someone, fully expecting to never see them again in your life? Don’t waste that split second of eye contact- smile! Do the head nod, flash them a thumbs up, or just smile… best case scenario, it’ll make their day. Worst case scenario, you’ll never see them again. Next time I’m out walking on the side of the road and a runner comes along, panting and sweating, I vow to give them a thumbs up- just to see what happens. They might be plugged into their earbuds and listening to music, or they might not even look up, but if they do, maybe they’ll appreciate it… possibly even be encouraged. And then they’ll pass it on and make someone else inexplicably happy for a few moments on the side of the street.
