Could it really be that easy? 7 days? Seriously?
Where in the world did you come up with this, Amber?
There’s a nature trail within close proximity to where I live. I was going through a lot of life changes and challenges during this particular time. Who am I kidding, there are always lots of changes and challenges! I started intentionally blocking off 30 minutes each evening to walk down the trail. It was my time to gather my thoughts and have a bit of peace and quiet in a fast-paced world.
After a bit I started to notice some of the tiniest things, and you guessed it…they made me smile. I decided I was going to commit to finding one thing each day that made me smile. I shared this commitment with one of my “most bestest” friends (because I wanted to make sure I kept myself accountable for all 7 days). The accountability part of the 7 days started as a sideline notion, but soon became what fueled the 7 smiles. Each day I would send a picture of something that made me smile, with a short blurb, to my friend. She would then send me something from her day that made her smile, or vice versa.
Our 7 Days 7 Smiles conversations were so much fun. Admittedly it was a little harder than I thought it would be, but I knew it was only 7 days, and it was great to share a smile with someone else.
I don’t know about you, but I get tickled pink when I see someone else smile. It’s the universal symbol of happiness. So for 7 days I knew my friend smiled each of those days because her pictures reflected something that made her happy each day. I was so grateful to have been a part of sharing in those moments with her.
It would be my honor to share in 7 days of happiness with you as well! If you would like me to send you 7 Days 7 Smiles, just fill out the form below. When you get my first picture and blurb (I seem to really like that word today…) you will be able to reply back with your own picture of what made you smile, with a little blurb of your own. We will do this for 7 days (no skipping days…) pure smile commitment going on here.
I’m so excited to see what makes you smile. Look for what made me smile today soon after you hit the submit button below. *Disclaimer- Due to time zones, please be patient with receiving your first 7 Days 7 Smiles email. I do these in real-time 🙂
