Thought for the Day – Smile

Thought for the Day – Smile

A friend of mine told me about a book by Thich Nhat Hanh – Peace is in every Step, so I bought it. I can’t remember if I have read it from start to finish (I plan to (again!)), but I wrote down some things that resonated with me.

The first one is – Smile.

When I am out and about, I look at people that pass me by. I sometimes smile at them and sometimes I get a smile in return.

When I lived in Surin in Thailand, I’d often get annoyed at people because they kept looking at me (there weren’t many foreigners in that part of Thailand when I lived there the first time), but I soon realised that they were simply curious and if I just relaxed and took it in my stride and SMILED BACK, I was always rewarded with great big smiles and such enthusiasm. It really made my day and I hope it made theirs too!

“Sometimes, your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”– Thich Nhat Hanh

So, from me to you… catch my smile!

Thoughts for the day

Peace and love 🙂
