I always like getting involved with fun projects… perhaps because I like to have fun. I like to laugh, smile… you know, enjoy life. Some people roll their eyes at this idea, and to you… I’m sorry. But, there is a way that we can all be a bit happier.
A Tweet (a message on Twitter) came through saying that it was National Smile Week from July 19th – July 24th. This blog post talks about it. I don’t know if it’s true or not – honestly, I don’t care. It seems like fun, so I’ll do it.
This is somewhat of a Twitter challenge of sorts, but it would go like this…
Do one thing to make someone smile this week and send out a Tweet saying what you did. Tomorrow, I will buy a complete stranger a cup of coffee at Starbucks. Big deal, no. Will it make them smile, hopefully. Will it make me smile, yes.
So, to share it with everyone, you just want to make sure that you include the hashtag #smileweek in your Tweet. This would be an example:
“Just bought a guy named Bob a cup of coffee at Starbucks. He smiled. #smileweek”
“Just picked up the tab for a young couple at Chile’s. They smiled. #smileweek”
“Brought lunch to a man that lives outside of our building. #smileweek”
“Bought my wife flowers and delivered them to her office. #smileweek”
Just think of all the possibilities!
Have fun! Spread the smiles and let us know how it’s going!
