Lessons from a smiling dog...
Sometimes, when I’m out on my morning walk, I see a young couple out running with their dog.
They are ALWAYS smiling, and we always exchange a cheery “Morning !”, even though they are running faster than I could drive.
Even this morning, when it was so wet that ducks were wearing raincoats, they were still smiling.
I swear their dog smiles too.
And every time I see them, my own mood is immediately improved - I up my own pace just a little, and my mind invariably wanders towards the things I am grateful for.
Oh, and I smile a little wider at everyone else I pass on my way home too.
The thing is, I realised this morning that I could do all of those things every morning, whether I see the smiley couple and their smiley dog or not….
