A Little Secret about Me

I’m going to let you in on a little secret about me that may just come as a surprise…

You see, the reality is I’m not always the happiest person in world 100% of the time. I’ll understand if you need to sit down and take that in for a while. :)

In fact, being happy is something that I’ve needed a lot of help with. I can say that I definitely have grown in that area, though.

Just a couple weeks ago I went into my bank (to get quarters for laundry, probably). My bank is a really cheery place to be. Everyone there is really super friendly, so, whenever I go in there, it’s like walking into Cheers (that bar from the TV show “where everybody knows your name.”)

When I was in there one of the guys made the comment, in full hearing of everyone there (’cause that’s just how we all talk when I’m there), that he has never seen me unhappy. He noted to everyone that, every time I come in, I’m happy.

That’s quite a statement to have made about you. But, here’s the thing – it’s not like I thought to myself every time I went in there that I could make a difference in these people’s lives if I just put on a show and pretend to be happy.

The thing is, you may be making a difference in somebody’s life and never even realize it. It’s amazing how far a little kindness and a smile will go!

So,¬† keep on smilin’!
