What Makes You Smile/

I was walking to work this morning and was looking at all the people beetling along to work in Toronto. I was struck by how few of them were smiling! It was a sunny morning, a little chilly but certainly better than the Wintry mornings of just a few weeks ago! Most of us walking along that route have the promise of Spring, a sunny day, gainful employment ... AND we live in one of the best countries in the World!

I found myself smiling because of how nice the walk was this morning. I was smiling because so many people looked downright grumpy (who would want to wake up next to them)! With all of this smiling I felt great ... the perfect way to start the day.

Anyone who reads this blog regularly knows that one of my favorite sayings is "Walk Fast and Smile" ... which is exactly what I was practicing on my walk to work.

I also wrote a recent blog entry suggesting that people should smile, because it is contagious.

So the question for the day is ... what makes you smile?

More to the point ... I believe there are lots of reasons to smile, all you have to do is focus on them. Keep smiling ... its good for you!
