Smile and the whole world smiles with you
You can’t make someone like you, but you can behave in ways that will make it slightly more likely. Here are strategies to keep in mind – not ways to manipulate people or to be fake, but to ensure that your desire to be friendly effectively shines through!
Need a quick jolt of happiness right now? …And who doesn’t…
Put a smile on your face right now, and keep smiling. Research shows that even an artificially induced smile has a positive influence on your emotions. Just going through the motions of happiness brightens your mood.
And if you are smiling, other people will perceive you as being friendlier and more approachable
It’s rare that you see someone looking up at the sky as they walk; most people are looking down. I noticed that I too look down as I walk and I also noticed that most of the time the ground is dark and gloomy.
That got me thinking; since people are looking down why not make something that will make people smile and won’t blow away. Rocks! Rocks don’t blow away and they are easy to paint on.
One of my favorite websites now is Pinterest
. There are so many great ideas from folks all over the world and it spurred my creative spirit and I found this idea to make people smile. It just so happens to be around Valentine’s Day
Over the weekend my friend Jen and her daughter came over and we painted rocks. We painted bright colors along with hearts on the rocks.
Then we placed them all over Tampa
in hopes that when you are looking down, you will see one of our bright color rocks with a heart on it and it will make you happy.
If you see one, see one, feel free to take it and bring joy into your heart. If you don’t want to take it, leave it for the next person… they may need to find happiness for themselves.
