What’s behind your smile?

Isn’t moving house, one of the most stressful events, you can experience? What with packing all your belongings in boxes, wrapping each item, to ensure there are no breakages. But really, the best thing of all, is having to repeat the ‘same’ experience, hours later in reverse. Forwards and backwards, and hopefully, after many hours of packing and unpacking, you are happy. When I popped out briefly (to do some chores, before the removal van arrived), I was accosted by charity workers, who were trying to tell me, how amazing ‘Greenpeace’ is. Sign here. Thereafter 3 beggars: busking, yelling, and wearing signage to give them money. Then a shoe polisher. ‘Best deal in town’. Lastly, an acquaintance I had not seen for 6 months. All within 10 minutes. With all these interactions, I just smiled. Even though I wanted to say, something quite different. Some people choose to wear grim faces, and blank or dismiss every new encounter. Why? This conversation could be the beginning of a new idea, friendship, personal discovery, or they could just make your day. Smiling is definitely underrated.
