Thanksgiving is over and we have all been thankful, now it’s time to recognize that and say, you’re welcome. We do things for one another all the time and sometimes we get thanked, sometimes we don’t, the thought of saying you’re welcome does not always seem very important. It may or may not be important, but the thought is. Whether someone says thank you or not you should always say you’re welcome… even if that’s just to yourself. So today, after being thankful yesterday, say you’re welcome to those you’ve done things for. They may actually say thank you in response.
How to celebrate – Say you’re welcome to those you’ve helped. Do something that gets someone to say thank you. Remember to always say, you’re welcome.
Oct. 4th World Smile Day
If the entire world smiled at each other it would be a much
friendlier place. It might also be a lot stranger world, but we won’t go there.
Harvey Ball created the basic smiley face in 1963 but it took to 1999 to
actually make the day one the world celebrated. It always falls on the first Friday
in October, just in time for the coming holiday season. Not all smiles are
meant as friendly however so you need to watch the person smiling at you to see
if it is real or not. That may make it an entirely different place! But we
should give a smile to all we see anyway, it will make the world a better place
and give someone a boost they might not get otherwise.
How to celebrate – Smile at everyone you see today. Eyes
will tell you whether the smile is actually meant, not a cover up for other
intents. Always return a smile with a smile.
