  • When You’re Smiling, the Whole World Smiles with You.* | Spontaneous Smiley
    the Smiling Smiley Lady maybe I should get a cape hmmm competing against the MUCH larger unwieldy force of people convinced that society says we must be closed off to strangers Start with baby steps simply smile at every single person you pass Amazing how many smile back often it s you then them the you even more broadly then them with a new sparkle then you emitting a laugh then they answer with a chuckle all in the moments it takes for the two of you to pass on the sidewalk Spilled Soda on the Sidewalk Smiley Feeling bold Tell the stranger who s walking beside you as you head into the grocery store the funny story you know always gets you laughs at parties I have been delighted and amazed at how much strangers want to connect I guess that s the thing I have learned the most from my role as the Smiley lady People want to connect with you but society has taught us to shield ourselves Even the smallest crack an invitation via a smile and a flood of good will giggles and friendship pours out Be the person who opens the crack for others

    give yourself permission It may feel like life has you cast as the cartoon character constantly trying to out run the approaching steamroller but it isn t so If you step away all the awful things you feared could happen all the reasons you stayed they disappear Sure there ll be stuff to contend with but the world doesn t end I ve been in a bunch of hard situations

  • Another Day in Paradise. And Paradise is Everywhere!11/8/11 | Spontaneous Smiley
    Fabulous combination Why the long explanation I guess just wanting to illustrate that even I Freezing Cold in the Summer Girl can love Fall days and how they wake up your senses I love how today was the first time in months that I experienced that cold rush of air in the nostrils and into the lungs Delicious Everyday is just so full of chances to be delighted I m

  • Life is really great, even when it’s not easy. | Spontaneous Smiley
    with the details that defined the craziness how about I bore you with the gratitude attitude that made it a great week anyway Here s 10 things each could be rephrased in the negative 1 Hubby had an easy time of it in surgery and recovery 2 Don t have lice it s apparently going thru the schools 3 Son got poor old emphasis on old mom up to speed in a couple of computer things I d previously neglected on purpose to learn 4 Learned a bunch of new stuff for web designing while testing new software Beta versions arggh Oops just couldn t resist one little bit of whining 5 First heavy rain and this time the roof didn t leak 6 Saw a ton of my daughter Don t ask why But things look like they ll turn out OK 7 Met a guy who has friends in the Police Dept who s going to try to get stepped up patrolling near where I work 8 Colder weather meant lots of cozy heavy blankets on the bed I am not a happy camper without lots of layers in the winter 9 Colder weather meant pulling out the

  • Affordable Cashmere? Yay! Double yay! Triple yay! 10/26 | Spontaneous Smiley
    event Affordable cashmere yay Cool concept huh I always go from worker to worker thanking them for such a perfect event Nothing keeps you cozy and warm like cashmere Every year I save up for cashmere day and take the day off from work No kidding I block the day off on my work calendar Teacher Ruth is unavailable When I arrive 30 minutes before opening I am never the first There are always a handful of familiar women ones I ve seen every year who ve arrived ahead of me We all catch up on what we ve been up to since last year Many of the stories involve treasures found in a year of second hand stores garage sales and white elephant events I d never splurge on cashmere at a regular store where the cost of one sweater could feed a family for a week I have a family and they really do expect to eat all week But at the Thrift Store I can shop no make that over shop And I admit I take a crazy kind of competitive pride in buying more than anyone else And yes I do secretly congratulate myself bestowing on

  • Be determined. Be patient. And soldier on. 10/25/2011 | Spontaneous Smiley
    about how we all must simply soldier on Letting ourselves be ruled by fear of embarrassment is folly As is giving up too quickly or behaving too cautiously in some vain attempt to present a glowing track record The surgeon who only operates on easily removable tumors has a great track record but will never be the rock star Doctor s Office Smiley AND that ton of work includes putting

  • Why not skip being embarrassed and laugh about it right now?! 10/24/2011 | Spontaneous Smiley
    p 8563 This made me think about being embarrassed What s the big deal Aren t those situations the ones we all laugh about later Don t we tell and re tell the stories of our goof ups our humiliations our spinach on the teeth as we trip down the stairs with our shirt mis buttoned while giving the wrong answer to a ridiculously easy question in front of the person we were hoping to impress moments Here s the funny thing we don t merely re tell we re tell and in so doing throw down the gauntlet for those listening to one up us with their own stories of being embarrassed And then a grand time is had by all Everybody laughs and the one with the most humiliating tale is the winner So next time you fumble and feel embarrassed remember how you ll laugh about it later Maybe if you re lucky this screw up is so colossal that you ll be the dopey est the next time you and friends swap stories Why not skip right past embarrassment and laugh about it right then Why wait Why suffer feelings of humiliation The truth is nobody is paying that much attention Remember you are not the star in the movie that is their life http blog spontaneoussmiley com p 7340 It s just your ego that s worried about how you come off Remember you re just as lovable with your skirt tucked into your underwear as you are when it is not Smile Be happy and check your backside before you exit the stall Ruth feel free to insert your own humiliating memory here mine was just yesterday when a gust of wind exposed my bottom half to the hundreds of people waiting for the
