Sunday Smiles

Day 2 Jan 31: The thought for today is smiling. Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh said, "If in our daily life, we can smile...not only we, but everyone will profit from it. This is the most basic kind of peace work." A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business, and is the countersign of friendship and nonviolence. A smile not only improves our looks, it improves our outlook, and when our outlook improves, it is much easier to be at peace.

Today: I will share a sincere smile with everyone I meet, knowing that my smile contributes to peace.


I was going to find something about your heart...keeping it open, filling it with love, feeling the hurt to open a space to fill with joy. But, I came across this quote about smiling. And really, I think a smile is one of the most direct ways to connect your heart. Keep a smile ready to share. Use it to connect to someone else, heart to heart...it starts with a smile. Just like true peace begins in your heart.

Sunday smile day. Why not?
