Stop and smile

My post today – which is actually my first ever post 🙂 – is in response to a great blog post I just read.

“Life is full of good surprises”

The blog asked readers to share a good surprise that they have had lately.

My good surprise is discovering the inherent goodness in the people around me – friends, neighbours, people I chat to in the street.

You just have to stop for a moment and give yourself the opportunity to open up to people – and them to you.

Something as simple as a genuine smile given without expectation.

To give other people the gift of your attention – to listen them without judgement – is an amazing thing.

    This post really resonated with me! I am always so busy but I am going to make some time to smile more and take more moments to give people some attention!
