Day nine: Something that you yourself do that makes you smile.
I make myself smile when I give something to others that makes them happy. When I give someone a gift for their birthday that I know they’ll really like, that makes me smile. I actually want to give little letters or gifts more often because I know it can mean a lot to others.
When I was going through my low point last year, one of my closest friends sent me a card and small presents in the post. It wasn’t the presents (although they were fab!) that made me so happy at that moment, it was the gesture and the fact I knew someone out there really cared about me.
Bottom line – giving to others (no matter how small it is) makes them smile, which in turn makes you smile.
