Positive Thinking takes conscious effort as you retrain your mind to minimize negativity. Trying to see good in everything and everyone can be a struggle some days so I want to highlight small moments of positivity that I see as I live day to day. These moments are featured as "Heart Smiles".
As I got into my car today I saw an unfamiliar car pulling up that parked right next to me. The window rolled down a woman, with distress in her voice, asked for directions. I asked where she was going and gave her the directions she needed. As she started to pull off I heard "thank you" with a much more positive tone of voice. I said "you're welcome" and my heart smiled. Why did my heart smile? It's simple really. My heart smiled at the thought that by simply telling her how to get to her destination I helped to alleviate some stress for her. You know how it feels to be lost, it's not very fun. And the relief you feel when you finally get to where your destination is, sometimes, indescribable. I was glad to have helped her today. It made my heart smile.
