This is my weekly smile, a chance to just smile for no other reason than it feels good. If more people smile more often I believe it can have a positive effect on the world.
This week I smiled because i got a chance to play and record some music. Any musician, writer or artist out there knows how freeing it is to have a good chunk of time set aside to feed your creative side. It renews the spirit, feeds the soul. It makes me smile. The little ditty I did is pretty silly, but it was fun. You might even smile listening to it (Hint – it is based on a poem I did for my old A Smile a Day).
I also smiled after talking to my parents over the weekend. I talk to them a lot and nothing real new came up. They talked about what is happening in their lives, plans for the future and just life in general. The thing is, with all of these celebrity deaths recently, well, they were all younger than my parents, even Celine Dion’s “older” husband. It is nice to call and hear that they are relatively healthy and active. That they get out and participate in the community every day. That they travel and have hobbies. It makes me happy. It makes me smile.
f you haven’t seen it, here is a little background to The Weekly Smile as well as some quick guidelines.
So, what made you smile this week? Write about it and post on the linky. While you’re there, read what everyone else is smiling about! And come back to it later, if last week is any indication new smiles will be added daily!
