As I was hoeing out a spot to set up a home office at our house I came across this little guy. When I set him in the sun he starts to sway. His message is very simple and yet very powerful in these times. Smile. Smile more. Smile even when it doesn’t feel like a time to smile. In these very difficult times it can be hard to find things to smile about. Many have lost their jobs and the pandemic, as I write this, is still a very serious health concern. And it probably will be for quite some time to come. But there’s one more concern you should have. The impact on your emotional and mental health. That’s why it’s probably a good thing to smile and then smile more. This little guy starts moving and seems to be smiling more whenever he sees sunshine. Maybe we should all use sunshine as our smile trigger.
