The Joy In A Smile

Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. - Mother Teresa

Have you ever been out and about, and noticed someone else that just seems to be beaming with joy! Happiness literally pouring out of them. Were they smiling? Probably! When I notice someone's smile it fills me with joy, and it causes me to smile, too!

The beauty of a genuine smile is like nothing else. We are all made to rejoice and share joy, even when circumstances in our lives are far from perfect. Today, as we wake up to the tragic news of the shooting in Las Vegas, our hearts ache. I hope today, in each of our small corners of the world, we can find a way to share joy in the midst of such sadness. Give someone else the gift of a smile. You never know the storm they may be walking through, so carry joy in your heart. 

Today I challenge you to have a mindset rooted in joy and to be mindful of those around you. You never know who might need to see the light of your smile, so share it with the world no matter what.

Keep smiling, friends! xo
