Over summer, If spent a lot of time running around with the kids on playgrounds and luckily beaches, and I noticed that every time a new adventure, experience or game came up they smiled….
Then I looked at the parents, some were buried in their phones, some were observing and finally some where involed. They smiled back, the kids knew that their parents got it then, and they smiled more….
I started to notice my own smiling, when i did it…and even more when i wasn’t and i came to the realisation that I don’t smile that often…but when I did I felt better, lighter…less serious, the world was less serious….other people smiled back, the kids loved it….
So goal number 2 this year…smile.
This will be another big year, with a lot of challenges. For me, smiling more will help me get through that….
