Make A Difference – Find Your Smile

 

 

 

Just like a rolling stone gathers no moss, roaming with a smile garners bright light and cheerfulness.

 

The world around us moves quickly and it seems our industry is moving just as fast. And although we have very little control over the speed of life; spreading smiles along the way is one thing we do have control over.

 

The power of a smile, a kind word, or just lending a listening ear is too often underestimated. Caring is not just a response; caring is a cause. And with the simple act of sharing a smile “or” a nice gesture will not only energize you but provides the authority to embolden others, too.

 

Hopefully, most of us seek a happy existence. And once we find happiness we have the power to spread happiness. A friendly smile can just be what the doctor ordered and besides – showing you care attracts caring folks into your world.

 

You have to be willing to act and all you need is your smile. No gesture of kindness is too small. A caring smile or gesture timed right will make your world better (IMO) and who knows? Something that may seem minor but so easy to do can positively impact others along the way!

 

Find your smile – your smile makes a difference…

Jeff Dowler, CRS ~ get me in front of a camera and my smile seems fake and unnatural, but as I go through the day without a camera in my face - my smile doesn't get any better (IMO)... No matter what - I agree - there's unlimited power behind a real smile

Nina Hollander ~ I love JFK's quote, too! As a matter of fact... I'm in! There are a lot of things going on from day to day in a very fast-moving world "and" for that and so much more -we can't be reminded enough about the power of smiling and all the 360-good it unleashes

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD ~ unless I am in front of a camera being told to smile "YES." And why not light up this world one smile at a time... (AND... I dig that video, too "plus" I really enjoy knowing there are other AR members that like Dave, very cool, indeed)

John Dotson ~ I like to think of LB as a small city, too (lol population just over 490k) Anyway, I do my best even in a bigger small city... And especially for the number of folks living in LB (in general) -LB is a very friendly place to live

M.C. Dwyer ~ Ok... He was really sweating. And I love knowing you like Dave, too! As most know around here, I am a huge fan. I do my best to share his music because I think most don't know what they are missing...

You are so right!  I love smiling at a waitress or someone in that type of profession who doesn't always get a "Hi, how are you?"  It works miracles and keeps  that same energy going!
