Lately everyone has been a little depressed. And really, who could blame them? The economy is buckling, there are daily stories of murders and robberies, and summer seems to be finally ending.
But, I've also noticed that everyone is just trying to make the most of things. Trying to change their perspective so that they can be happy.
Great idea!!! It's time for everyone to smile. A wonderful goal for the world would be to have everyone smiling all in one moment. Sounds hard, but maybe one day our world leaders will get together and plan it out.... :D... see it's not that hard... kinda like Christmas...
For now, I've got a plan. Whenever we see a frown (from a stranger or a close friend) we should do our best to make eye contact and give them the brightest smile we can muster... There's nothing wrong with that. Sometimes all that it takes to turn my day around is a smile from a complete stranger. And smiles are contagious. Smile at someone walking down the hall, and soon the whole hallway will be showing their pearly whites...
Sometimes you might get a strange look. hat's okay. That person just isn't getting enough smiles lately.
Also, try not to end your day on a bad note. If you've been fighting with your hubby, or friend, or ferret, make sure you say you love them before you nod off. The situation doesn't have to be resolved (sometimes it's better just to go to sleep, stupid things can be said when you're tired) just tell them that you love them so they don't spend the whole night wondering.
Love mankind, look out for the welfare of everyone and not just yourself. That's the reason our economy is in the hole!
Consider the other person's perspective.... If a person is depressed saying stuff like "Why are you never happy!" Will not HELP!! Just be as supportive as you can. I know it gets tough. But if that person needs you try your best to just be there for them. Really that's what they need at the moment until they can find a way to sort out their problems...
Love everyone as if they belong to your extended pack! Remember that you shouldn't betray your pack if it just benefits you. Packs don't fight over leaders if there is plenty of food to go around.
