Monday Motivation – Smiles DO make a difference.

My goal each day is to make someone smile. Sounds easy. I work in mental health and often it is very difficult as people are struggling to make sense of their world and how they ‘fit’ in.

Sitting at Sonic reflecting…as I do. It has been a very busy week and there has only been time for work, sleep and eat when I can. Yes, it is Sunday but my weeks don’t begin on Sunday or Monday. They end when I get a day off which could be any day of the week. That is by choice. I love what I do.

I have met brave souls who have more courage than they realize. I have spent time with a group of young adults and allowed them to process current events. Endless stories become motivation to continue my journey of assisting those in their recovery.

I spent $8.30 and had a $20. Told the car hop “keep the change”. He hesitated and said “keep the change?…All of it?” 😳 I said yes. He smiled! and then went back to work. Goal of the day accomplished! That was easy! I feel I am creating change in the world one Sonic carhop at a time! 😁

It always amazes me that something so simple can make such an enormous difference in a person’s day or even life.

One smile can be the difference in giving up or continuing the journey.

Be kind.
Be compassionate.
Be empathic.

We truly do not know the circumstances of anyone.

Human Connection = EVERYONE is trying to get through one day in order to begin another. Let’s do it with an open heart and most importantly … open mind.
