99/100 Days of I Believe

I believe in spreading joy and gladness freely and often.

Try it, won't you?

Make eye contact with the person you pass on the street. Look up from your phone, take delight in the sunlight on the rooftop and then point it out to someone standing next to you wherever you are.

Learn somebody's name. Ask the electrician about his family. Buy lunch for the person behind you in line. Smile more. Smile at someone else. Smile at everyone else.

I believe that when you greet people in the grocery store or next to you at the movies, or in your living room for that matter, with joy and gladness, they will give it right back to you - they might even pass it on - and when they don't, it's probably when they need it the most, so do it anyway, and then do it again.

I believe that the more joy I can muster, the more joy I can share, and I believe that the more joy we share, the better off we all will be.

Spread joy and gladness freely and often, won't you please? It's good for you, it's good for all of us. It's good for the world.
