The ripple effect

So often you hear ‘Give someone a smile and make everyone’s day.’ I encourage this. I live this. I breathe this. If I can make someone smile then I’ve succeeded with my day. Whether it be strangers or loved ones, allowing them to realise that the world can be bright and welcoming is a true gift to mankind.

One smile turns to another and another. A ‘How was your day, dear?’ answers; just wonderful! The Day moves along nicely. Without realising it, you have ripple effected the questioner and their day gets a little bit brighter.

Unfortunately the reverse is the same. Getting annoyed with a neighbour or being rude at a check out can ripple effect into the lives of those receiving your bad day. A bad moment can be released by someone to feel better about themselves and some people genuinely grouch because that is how they reach perspective, but being mindful of the ripple effect will actually allow you to express your emotions without yelling or being rude.

Write stuff down. Read a book. Sew, walk, run, meditate, dance do what makes you happy, happy enough to forget bad vibes and move forward to a happier and healthier place for your mind. Do anything to help yourself move through your day without manifesting bad energy to others either on purpose or by accident. Anyone who has followed my blog for a while would know that I sing and write.

Look for that smile from others.

Be the smile for others.

Live happy.

Focus on good.
Be the best you can be.

Towards yourself and others.

Remember, your happiness is your goal and a living positive and meaningful life will help you achieve that.

    1. It’s an unfortunate part of human nature I think. For many years I believed that if my tribe was happy then I would be but the life lesson I learned was that you are in charge of your own happiness. If we focus on our own happiness then that ripples out to others instead of looking to others to obtain peace.
