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.
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 …..an open mind.
