So glad you posted this kindness message - empathy goes a long way in mood distress - your cherry and complimentary attitude perhaps warded the tension she was experiencing; be the initiator of smiles (as you were) and brighten someone's day
It must be hard to be the front desk person at a doctor's office. Much of the time people aren't happy to be there and probably don't offer a smile or extend much courtesy themselves. Good reminder.
Ah, the power of a smile and its kindness. We never know what weight someone might be carrying. We have the choice to add to,it, or make it a bit easier to bear. So good that you make the conscious choice to ease her day! Thanks for the reminder!
So true---thank you for sharing this insight---i will remember it next time i'm faced with a grouch :-)
Yesss, shine brighter. Love this message Mish.
I would like to say I would have done this , I really would. But sometimes I think people like this need to be made aware of how they are coming across to others.Now saying that, it can be done in a kind way.
Glad you were positive and bright
Smiles can conquer everything and you proved it.
May it perk her up in so many ways!
yes, putting out the energy before it goes negative is such a great way to handle! Well done <3.
