We’ve all heard the term that a “smile can go a long way” and since our days can be filled with frustrations and challenges, we often forget to smile and showcase the beauty that we have within. A smile is the easiest way to show someone you care and the best way to share a piece of your brightness into someone else’s life. From those you walk past on the street to the friendly neighbour that held the door open for you, a smile is your greatest gift and here are five ways to deliver this happiness to those around you every day.
The key word here is “surprise”. Think about those around you that might need a bit of a pick me up and find a way to make them smile by being creative! This could be anything from writing a nice handmade card about how much you appreciate them to surprising them with something special that they wouldn’t expect. Anything that makes them feel as if they were thought of is exactly what you want to achieve when making a random act of kindness.
In a world where we are constantly under pressure to look and act a certain way,it’s always a joy to be complimented on our differences. Spot out what makes someone who they are and tell them; I’m sure they don’t hear it enough and it will definitely put a smile on their face.
Who said that we needed to grow out of indulging in a good joke or two? TheInternet is full of great people and stories that will make you laugh that you can share with others. It’s good for our souls and even better for our minds to take a break and laugh a little.
Saying thank you is often lost in how we live today, but it shouldn’t be. We should be thankful for everything that we are given by those who care about us and show us the support we need on even our hardest days. Those simple two words will have someone smiling ear to ear and isn’t that the whole point?
People are prone to smile when they someone else smile—it just genuinely happens. Make it a priority to go out of your way when you’re walking down the street, running errands or out in public place to smile at a stranger and watch as your gift suddenly brightens up their day! When we engage with sharing happiness with others, we as individuals develop and grow our minds to be more patient and kind, but the main quality that we develop is generosity.
When we go out and try to make those around us smile,we develop inner qualities of a kind and generous person and this is one of the most respected and admirable qualities a person can possess. At Bread and Basket Company, our goal is to drive more happiness to our clients’ lives with our baskets, which gives anyone who receives one a reason to smile. Spread the love with your smile today and let us know of any particular stories that have you smiling!
