You may be thinking, “I don’t care about conserving energy.” Or you may be thinking, “Smile or frown, I’m going to be myself.” Well, let me share a true story with you.
As a healthcare provider, I am blessed to meet so many people from all walks of life.
Well, one early morning several weeks ago I was starting a new evaluation on a patient. I was introducing myself to this new patient and I said, “Good Morning!”
The patient replied with two statements. He first said, “If you want to call it that.” Then, he proceeded to say, “What’s so good about it?”
At this point, you probably can tell that the patient wasn’t smiling. :( In addition, his demeanor was telling me to leave him alone.
There were many ways I could have responded in this situation (7am, the patient is hurting, and the patient is uncertain about his treatment because it is his first day seeing me), so I decided to just SMILE at the patient.
After a second or two of me smiling at him, he smiled back and said, “I’m sorry for being a butt, I just hurt.” After that exchange, he was the most friendliest man you could have ever met. All this happen in a matter of seconds up to 1-2 minutes tops.
I know this isn’t your first time hearing a story like this, but how many times do we all pass up opportunities to smile because we feel it is easier to go with the status quo?
It is amazing how many people are looking for positive energy!
Your smile is a big source of your positive energy.
Well, let me give you 2 simple reasons why you should SMILE!
2 Simple Reasons to Smile
- #1 Keep Away Negative
In most cases, positive energy will cause negativity to pack its bags and get out of town. (If you are trying to meet goals and achieve dreams, I don’t see anything wrong with negativity leaving the room.)
- #2 Welcome the Positive
Positive people love other positive people. You know the saying misery loves company. So, instead of being a welcome party for negativity. Smile, be positive, and invite other smiling, positive people into you life.
My mother would always tell me, “You can attract more flies with honey.”
I'm just a few years older, but I get it now.
If we want to attract things in life, we must be ATTRACTIVE.
No, I’m not talking about being sexy. But, I am talking about smiling more.
Smile from your head to your toes.
You may have many more reasons to frown, but to live the best life you can possibly live try smiling a little more. Try it right now, no matter who is looking at you. Just smile BIG. :)
If someone is looking at you, they may end up smiling as well. Come on, FEAR NOT and BE WEIRD enough to SMILE. (Who cares what anyone else thinks?)
SMILE!!! :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
