Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. ~Mother Teresa
Ever had a young child who has mischief on his/her mind , the tool of their prank still in hand, just look up, grinning, eyes laughing but the words are,” I really am sorry”. This makes us just forget how upset we are, we try to keep our face stern, straight faced, but that little grin, that laugh escaping until both are just having a good time cleaning up the mess. As we get older, we forget how often laughter, smiles, how often just love, will clear up,clean up the problems far quicker than frowns, arguments,harsh words. Many times we realize far too late, that we said far more than we meant to, even words that we really didn’t mean, until the problem is double in size to what it was in the beginning. We forget to draw from our inner child, the loving, trusting, innocent that finds it okay to turn a situation around with a smile rather than trying to “fix” the issues with “I just have to stand up for myself. “ “I just can’t NOT say something about this.” “I don’t want to be made a fool “, yet we need to think, rethink, edit, reedit, before we jump. If we take an action of love, an action of trust, then we are a beautiful thing.
Task for today: Just once before giving a finger to the driver who is driving us nuts, snapping at the store clerk who is talking to the customer in front of us too long instead of just checking them out, yelling at our loved one who hasn’t lived up to our expectations, smile even if we don’t feel it.
