Smile! It’s contagious

I was really down this morning. As I pulled myself out of bed and groggily drove the 50 mile stretch to work, my mind was bogged down with negativity. The only things I could think of were things clouding my happiness, none of which are particularly major, but even small dark clouds can ruin a sunny day. One thing inexplicably changed all of that.

A smile.

Who knew such a drastic change could come from something so mundane. I was driving through McDonald’s to get my daily coffee on my lunch break – which I ended up spilling all over my kitchen floor, I guess it just wasn’t meant to be. But anyways, as I went through the drive-thru, the guy who handed me my drink gave me a bright, genuine smile. You could see it in the spark of his eyes and hear it in the chime of his voice – he was legitimately very happy.

Maybe it’s just that it’s hard to resist being happy yourself after seeing someone so cheerful. Maybe it’s just seeing a friendly face that remotely cares about you after being alone with your bad thoughts all day. Or maybe there’s something about a happiness so pure and real that just the slightest touch of it can bring out the happiness in you.

It’s mysterious, it’s magical, and that’s why I love people. Do yourself and everyone you meet a favor today – smile!
