Smile Even When The Sky is Gray

I told someone today they needed to smile more. He asked me why. And then looked at me like I was crazy when I told him "smiling will at least make your day a little better." (Really I don't think the guy likes me. He just tolerates me because I keep bugging him to smile.) 

Then when I walked back to my office, I realized I haven't smiled very much lately. I do with certain people and I do with my residents. But not at home. And not really to a lot of other people like I normally would. 

And that song from "Annie" popped in my head. You know the one about being "never fully dressed without a smile"? That song has a ton of truth to it. Smiling makes anyone look better. Not fake smiles. I mean when they smile and it shows in their whole body. Smiling completes a person. 

I am all about making people smile even when I don't necessarily feel like smiling. Because smiling at someone can make all the difference in the world to their day. Which I guess means I will be bugging this guy every time I see him to smile. Maybe one day he actually will.
