The festive season means different things for different people. For me, it’s a magical time of the year where you’ll find me spending my cherished time with family and friends, although we’ll be staying put in Brisbane this year.
I also love that Christmas and the New Year prompt me to take stock of what is truly important. I try to go out of my way to make someone else’s day. It’s amazing how a simple smile can do so much, not just for ourselves, but those around us. It really is one way that we can literally change the world!
When I go to the market or shopping I smile at everyone. People stare at me and are no doubt thinking that I’m totally disabled. But I don’t let that stop me, I smile even harder! And more often than not, they smile back and it’s great 🙂
There are heaps of ways simple gestures can make someone’s day. Maybe line up in the newsagent and buy a $1 scratchie for yourself and one for the person behind you. What else could you do? Make someone’s day, leave them a written message under their dinner plate, make a phone call, send an unexpected card, options are endless!
I wish everyone an awesome Christmas and New Year!
