A Smile Could Travel the World

So, a few weeks ago in sacrament meeting, there was a guy that gave a talk on mothers, Charity and the influence that just being kind to someone can have on not only their world but on the whole world around them.  An example he gave was smiling.  He said that there are days that he has been walking in his own little world through campus, with his iPod in or on his phone, etc, and then someone looks up from their busy day and smiles. He smiles back, and keeps smiling, and the next person he walks past, sees that smile and smiles herself. Who really knows how long that smile will continue to spread, but maybe it will travel the world! Who knows, that smile that you pass along could change someone's day and if it continues to spread, maybe you could actually make a difference in the world.

He also mentioned that if everyone in just our small little section of the earth, (Our ward essentially) would live ONE day, just one, as the Savior would live, we could too show the world that Kindness still exists and it would almost be as if Christ was here for one-hundred extra days. So, here is a challenge for the few people that browse my blog every once in a while, even if you may not believe in God, or the same God that I do. Live just one day this week like you could possibly save someone's life. Help someone in need, be kind to everyone, don't forget that regardless of your beliefs, we all need love.  In the words of a popular song:

"What the world needs now, is love, sweet love" and change slightly the words of John Mayer's song and quit "waiting on the world to change"  and instead "be the change you want to see in the world" -Ghandi

Here is a smile, that you can use to spread the love!
