As I walked my dog to work this morning I realized how infectious a smile can be. It’s the simplest thing, but has the ability to make a tremendous impact. As I praised Linus for being a good boy we both looked over at this woman loading her kids into a minivan. I noticed the big smile she had on her face as she looked at us. We exchanged wide, tooth filled smiles and then continued walking. It then got me thinking that if you take a split second out of your day to exchange smiles with a complete stranger, it really has the ability to make someone’s day. The optimist in me thinks so anyways.
Is it the meeting of minds that makes this concept so intriguing? You really have no idea what the other person is thinking, but for that split second there is a shared mutual moment of happiness between two strangers.
