It's so easy to get preoccupied and not bother to greet people in a gracious and positive way - just due to distraction. Have you ever thought of mindfulness and smiling being intimately connected? Here's a lovely expression of that connection:

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.

-- Joseph Addison


  1. Wow. I really needed this.

    When I am down I sort of wish I was invisible, and get "dissapointed" when my world tells me I am not. What right have I to put everybody else down?

    Thanks for a little inspiration.

  2. And thanks for the comment, Miss Attica!

    I'm not sure where I found that quotation but it really gave me a lift as well.
