Positive Thinking takes conscious effort as you retrain your mind to minimize negativity. Trying to see good in everything and everyone can be a struggle some days so I want to highlight small moments of positivity that I see as I live day to day. These moments are featured as "Heart Smiles".
As I pulled into my parking space at Walmart another car pulled into the space right next to me. The driver was an old man and the passenger was an old woman with a breathing tube in her nose. I went into Walmart, bought my items, and returned to my car. Across from my car was a mother and her two children getting into their car, the mother's face was hard revealing that there must have been something bothering her. As I walked past I noticed the old woman with the breathing tube was still in the car and she was waving to get the attention of the mother. I brought the mother's attention to the old woman as I was approaching my car. She had all of our attention as she proclaimed to the mother "Your hair is beautiful!" The mother's hard face softened sweetly as she thanked the old woman for the compliment, got into her car, and pulled off. As I thought about how such as small gesture may have made the mother's day brighter, even if only for a moment, my heart smiled.
