Everyday I wake up and write in my journal of all the experiences of the previous day and why I am grateful for all those events. I have come to the realization that every event happens to help push me towards my goals and dreams. The difficult part might be to keep smiling and embrace each passing moment as part of the journey towards success.
I thought about this idea and said to myself, “wow” there are no good things and bad things; perhaps favourable and unfavourable moments, but the bottom line is that these are just moments in time that I can leverage off to learn, stretch and grow. Granted there were many times that I didn’t enjoy the moment, simply because I didn’t quite understand how to keep smiling or another way of looking at it would be to embrace the present moment as a way of seeing the bright side of everything.
So here’s a project that I am interested in doing and I call it “Keep Smiling” because I realized that there are so many blessings given to us with people that I meet everyday. Hmmmm, how about when you go to a coffee shop and the barrister adds a milk-frothed smiley over your cappuccino. Or how about a clown that keeps on smiling or the person that you just met in the grocery aisle? How many people do we interact with that bring a smile to us? Interesting ain’t it???
So the project is really about gratitude, seeing the positive side and recognizing the blessings that other people’s skills contribute to us in a unique way.
Keep Smiling 🙂
