Season for Non-Violence Day 2: Smiling

Season for Non-Violence Day 2: Smiling

Smiling? Non-violence? Really?

Yes.

Have you taken a look around? There are a LOT of frowny faces looking back at you or more likely, not looking at you at all!

Are people really that unhappy? Angry? Deep in thought?

Smile at them.

Um, why? They might punch me.

Unlikely, but they just might smile back at a friendly face.

You rarely know what’s going on with someone else when they’ve got that frown going on. Do we assume they are a grouch and steer clear? Or do we freely offer a kind gesture of a smile?

Let’s give it a try. Let’s smile … and mean it. Smiles have energy. They can touch a soul.

Here’s a quote from Miss Dolly to remember:

If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours. -- Dolly Parton / stephmarks.com

Yeah, I know it’s kind of cheesy, but it gets the point across.

Share some smileage today. It will make you feel good.

Love you, mean it!
