A few days ago, mom sent me this little article with a note attached saying: 'yup, embracing the little things in life makes a whole lot of sense'. Well, according to the piece spending time with family and all the tiny things like smiles, sunny walks or even helping someone out gives us those awesome happy butterflies. But there was one thing that Katie said that stayed with me: 'It would be great if everyone could smile at someone today and get the warm glow from knowing you’ve made someone happy.'
So, from this Monday till the end of the month I made a pact with myself to smile at a total stranger at least once a day. I must say, it has been such a fun experience so far. For example yesterday, an older lady was walking by and after she realized that I was actually smiling directly at her she turned around and wished me a good day. The whole thing felt totally liberating and made me feel happier for the rest of the day knowing that I made someone smile back:)
Now lovelies, fancy joining in? xo
