Today when I look at this smiling face I’m thinking of what we collectively need as we step into “uncertain times”.
This fairy takes me back to a class I took at the Flynn Theater a bunch of years ago. It was called “Speaking in the Limelight”. An opera singer taught the class and brought to it wonderful pizzazz and practical knowledge. We, the students, brought our fears of speaking in public and got tips and opportunities to work them out.
The best piece of advice I got - “Once you arrive at the podium. Take a breath. Look out at all the people you’ll be speaking to.”
Today this fairy is suggesting we “Take that extra moment to smile.” Smiling allows you to connect in with yourself. This then allows you to connect in with others in a genuine way. People LOVE that.
Start first with yourself. Smile your brightest smile inward and connect in with you and how you’re feeling. Then get up, go out, and find ways to make practical and positive movements that take us forward.
It might just be smiling at others.
Whatever it is, it’ll be good.
