My husband plays this ‘game’ on a daily basis, one that he calls ‘random smiles’. What he does, is just gives his biggest and best smile to strangers as he passes by them.
At first I told him that he was freaking people out, but then I noticed that doing this was having startling results. More often than not, the person’s neutral or sometimes sad demeanour immediately turns into a massive smile right back at him. You can literally see happiness form.
You see, this is his purpose in ‘random smiles’ – he simply wants to made someones day a little brighter.
Watching this makes me grin from ear to ear and also chuckle. I’ll be driving down the road and he’ll cheer from the passenger seat, ‘YES, random smiles success!’.
It’s kind of amazing what a simple smile can do.
Smile Cookies are back at Tim Hortons restaurants all across Canada!
From now until September 21, buy a $1 smile cookie and all proceeds will be donated to a local charity near you. In my city, all proceeds are going to our public schools.
It’s a simple way to give back, and make a difference in someones life. Plus, the cookies are pretty delicious so it’s a win/win if you ask me.
So, share a cookie and share a smile – I suggest doing both. It’s truly amazing what a smile can do.
