Be Kind & Smile More in 2015

Well it’s almost time to flip the calendar to a New Year.  Sure there will be lots of resolutions,, promises and goals being made as we approach 2015.  Many will pledge to stop doing this or start doing that, how about something that will make a difference for you and everyone you encounter Be Kind & Smile More.

Simple right?

So why not?

There is so much sadness, unrest and hatred in the world right now. You can be the difference.  I often use the hashtage #BeKind and my favorite #SmileMore because its something I try to do on a daily basis.


Need more inspiration to consider this New Year’s resolution to Be Kind & Smile More, here are some of my favorite quotes from a truly inspirational woman who walked among us not too long ago.  I had the absolute privilege, honor and blessing to meet Mother Teresa in 1997, just a few months prior to her passing from this earthly world onto her just rewards of heaven.  I was so touched by her kindness and wisdom.  I’ll have to blog about our time together soon.

Here is some of the wisdom Mother Teresa is well known and I cherish.

“Peace begins with a smile”

“Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.”

“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.”

“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.”

No matter what religion you practice or the name of your God, in 2015 make this small commitment to be kind and smile more.  You may not see the ripples of your actions, but others will and hopefully you will see more people being kind and smiling too.
