It doesn’t hurt to smile. Smile because the pain is only temporary. Smile because trouble don’t last always. Smile because you are a winner. Smile because you have the victory!
Last week, my manager seen me my journal and asked, “What is this?” I responded, “It’s my journal, I bring it with me because throughout the day I feel the need to write my thoughts down, rather it’s motivational thoughts, scriptures, poetry, or simple feelings.” After that he responded, “Ok then, that’s awesome. I was just wondering.” Well, Friday when my manager seen me at work, he happily approached me with “Damien, you know how you were talking about your journal? Well, I went and got me one because I think that’s a good idea and a good thing to have.” I smiled and responded with “I’m glad to hear that!”
Now, this may not be absolutely nothing to anyone but to me, I was moved. Just by carrying my journal to work, it inspired my manager to get him one. I constantly tell myself I must “Be the change I want to see.” I can’t make an impact if I’m not changing and growing myself.
I have MANY reasons to smile and I will let this reason serve as my Smile of the Week.
Be Blessed. Be Humble. Stay Hungry.
