Be the Love you wish to see in the world.
Great idea. Noble concept.
I wondered that, too.
I thought it would be best to start with the easiest and simplest way. How can we be love with the fewest dollars, smallest amount of time, and least amount of energy?
I pondered. I puzzled.
The lightbulb lit.
I smiled and chuckled. It was as plain as the smile on my face.
A smile. The simplest, easiest, and most effective way to love.
To smile at someone, you have to see them. You have to look at another human being. When two pairs of eyes meet, there is a connection. If that connection produces a smile, it’s a positive connection.
Positive connection is powerful. Positive connection elevates moods for both parties. You’re happy to see them. They’re happy that you’re happy to see them. A smile says it all.
Simply by fixing your eyes on someone and moving a few muscles in your face, your smile, your love, changed their world, and yours.
It took a few seconds out of your day. It cost zero dollars. It required almost no energy.
Every act of love changes the world.
A smile can be an act of love.
Every smile can change the world.
Sure, it may be miniscule, but so is a grain of sand. You think it's not powerful? Get one in your eye. Or thousands. Or millions.
What if we smiled at everyone we saw…FOR AN ENTIRE DAY? Really, what if? Go there with me.
Wouldn’t it be incredibly difficult to have a bad day if everyone you saw smiled at you?
Wouldn’t it be incredibly difficult to have a bad day if you smiled at everyone you saw?
AND what if we smiled at each other on MONDAY, the universally-acknowledged worst day of the week? What then?
Oooo! What if we smiled at everyone EVERY Monday? What then, I ask you, WHAT THEN???
I can’t even.
Wanna try it with me? Monday’s coming…
Be love. Spread it with smiles.
