Do you like to smile? Do you like when people smile at you? I like both! Smiling used to not be my thing like it is now. I always kind of had that whole RBF thing going, especially when I was a cocktail server. I didn’t mean to. In fact, I was usually in a pretty great mood when serving. Over the last few months, I’ve made a very conscious effort to smile more and make eye contact with people. Even when I’m not feeling the best physically or mentally, I make the effort. I can honestly tell you that it has made a huge difference in the way I interact with people. That simple act of sharing a genuine smile, has allowed me to receive so many smiles back. I have a bit of a routine these days, going to the gym and then the grocery store before coming home, and the people I see at those places always look really happy to see me now and we have a little more conversation, which I truly enjoy. ☺️ I know not everyone wants to talk, and that’s okay. But even just sharing a smile or telling someone “Have a great day,” goes such a long way.
Also...I’m posting this photo hoping to channel some warmth because fall is officially here in Vegas. 🍁
