Smile and Inspire

Yesterday, I was in a grocery store picking up a few items. A guy friend of mine called me on my cell phone and we began to chat as I strolled around with the shopping cart, casually checking off my grocery list.  While pausing to to place an item in the shopping cart, a small framed, blonde woman in her 50’s looked at me and exclaimed, “Oh my God! You literally took my breath away! You are so beautiful and look at the smile! Your smile is so beautiful! You just made my day!” I was still on the phone with my friend, who wanted to know what all of the commotion was about. I simply explained to him that my  energy and presence just touched a soul.

We all have to realize that we carry a presence and aura. People can see and feel what we project. When we are in the presence of others we should be kind and positive. We never know what others are going through in this life. I do not know what kind of day that woman was having before she walked into that grocery store. But I thank God that she found light and positive energy in my smile that illuminated her day. Inspiring lives is win-win. It feels great to empower others just through a smile. Take the time to say a kind word, encourage someone and smile. Your gesture could be the seed planted to give hope to a suffering soul.
