As of late I am noticing things that I have never even realized.
I think it was Wayne Dyer who said to try and meet each new day and every person as just that…new. No preconceived notions or judgements. Just fresh and new.
A clean slate every day. This is a great concept but definitely a bit tricky when this fast paced life starts coming at me.
This morning I noticed…really noticed that I am smiling a lot. I smile at everyone. I think formerly my eyes would shift to the ground and if the other was brave enough to smile, wave or say good morning…then I would respond.
Today I noticed I am completely smiling and connecting with the others. I was passing one woman on the trail and she was not smiling. I did not even realize that she was not smiling until after I smiled and said good morning and then her whole face lit up!
It’s contagious! I will be brave and smile and say hello first always from this point on.
It’s just good energy.
