Move Mountains with a Smile

This is such a simple sentiment and such a powerful action. Our resting face, the face we have on when we think no one is looking, speaks volumes. Here’s the thing. Someone is almost always looking, even when we’re unaware. The check out clerk, the gas station attendant, the driver in the next car, the person on the park bench as we walk by, the woman who exited the store as we were going in – all of these people see our resting face. And all are momentarily impacted by the smile, the scowl, the worry, the calmness or whatever we’re carrying around in our outward facing emotional handbag. And, admit it. You’ve had moments of thinking “why did that woman scowl at me?” It may even have caused you discomfort, fear, worry or regret – even if that scowl had nothing to do with you. But when someone makes the choice to purposefully smile and catch your eye, you feel something different. You feel “seen,” and you often feel a sense of having been the recipient of good wishes or at the very least, no ill will. Imagine the ripples we create without even realizing it. We can make a conscious choice to move mountains, plant seeds of content and happiness and encourage others – just by choosing to smile today. Our resting face, the face we have on when we think no one is looking, speaks volumes. Let’s be conscious and move mountains.
