Yes I spoke to several people who I did not know, as they say a smile costs nothing.

Yes! very satisfying exchange with an older man pushing a baby in a stroller. I stopped my car for tthem in the crosswalk, but it took five or six cars passing in the other lane to finally get a break. we had a bit of a chat. he had a really nice smile.

Life is too short to not be happy.

Heck ya I smiled at more than one stranger and said hello to three or more people while I was out and about. It makes me feel good whether they smile back or not. What good are the blessings we receive if we don't share them? I have changed so much these last 100 days, I feel like I am meeting the new "me" each and every day - and I kinda like him. lol. Have a blessed week y'all - your friend - "Sprink"

I really don't worry about tomorrow anymore, because Today is enough for me. God bless you and yours always - "Sprink"

I love the reaction I get from people when I smile at them and say hello. Their blank looks are transformed, their reaction brightens my day. I believe that a smile can make a big difference!

My personal affirmation that I created for myself when I was 300+ pounds-"I am a person of value regardless of what I weigh. I am here to make a difference!" Using the power of love, I lost 173 pounds.

Actually, yes. My husband and I went to Subway for dinner. The guy at the counter said, "What would you like today?" I said, "A filet mignon and a baked potato." He paused a moment, and then said, "How about a Philly cheese steak and a bag of chips?"

Jae, how beautiful! I always forget to smile at myself - more often than not, when I see myself in the mirror, I'm critical...and not constructively.

On Monday I smiled at strangers at a bowling alley/restaurant combo where I was buying gift cards to give to women who schedule mammograms at our educational event this Thursday.

Today I'll be smiling - a lot - at the woman who will determine if we receive a grant to support our programs.

This evening I'm working at a Women's Wellness event that attracts about 300 women...so I am guessing my jaw will hurt from smiling...which may be a good thing...I won't feel like eating much! How's THAT for being positive! Hahahaha....

We cheered on our supervisor today as she announced that she was being spontaneous for probably the first time in her life. She found out on Thursday about an incredible flight deal to London, England and with our encouragement, she booked her flight and leaves tomorrow for a week in England. I'm thrilled for her that she has jumped at this opportunity.

Lots of smiles for everyone I encountered today. I'm addicted to the warm fuzzy feeling I get when I surprise someone I don't know with a smile.

This is something I do no matter where I am especially in material stores. LOL I not only get the benefit of feeling good but have learned a lot from these people I will probably see only once or possibly more often. It depends on their addiction to fabric. LOL
My husband often tells me I could strike up a conversation with a light post. Especially at church if someone I do not recognize I will introduce myself if at all possible. I always get back more than I give.

I did. She was a customer at the mechanic's. I learned a lot about her. Like, for instance she knits and she lived in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada for 21 years. Miss Schmidt. I probably will never see Miss Schmidt ever again, but we shared a moment and it was lovely.
