When I started this blog earlier this year, my intentions here at the Reading & Writing Spot were to make a place for Christian and inspirational reading. I wanted a place where you could find faith inspired books and articles. Along with that, I also wanted to tell my journey of how I went from self-publishing to seeking traditional publishing with my new contemporary novel.
After writing my twelfth blog for this year, I looked at all the articles I’ve written. Each of them had the same elements. They shared hope, faith, and ended with a smile. But the one difference was the subtitle of my blog which did not fit. Therefore, I’ve changed the subtitle to my website. Not to worry, you can still reach me at www.desireefuture.com. The new subtitle is Hope, Faith & a Smile something I’ve been giving you from the start and will continue to.
Earlier this week, I had an appointment in an office building where there were metal detectors that you had to go through to access the building. Good morning was the first thing I heard upon entering the building. I arrived at my appointment early and was told to wait against the wall before being allowed entry to the office. As employees entered the building and passed through the metal detectors, I watched their interactions. The two vibrant security guards greeted everyone with such grace and joy that I had to look.
They gave such an energetic Good Morning it was worthy of waking, even Sleeping Beauty herself. Several employees passed through and there were things like “I like your new hairstyle, Bud it’s almost the weekend you can do this and my favorite, have a good day.” They said Have a good day to everyone. This was simply mind-blowing to me because I’ve never seen so much enthusiasm at a security checkpoint before. Upon leaving the building, I told them how I loved their energy and positive vibe.
These young ladies made it their business to put a smile on each person’s face simply by saying two words. Good morning. Imagine what this world could be like if everyone did what they did. This would be a truly amazing place.
The reason I write is to make people smile. I want my words to touch someone’s soul who might need a little inspiration to keep from diving off that bridge. Or taking those pills. I want my words to encourage, uplift and to give hope. This is how I make people smile. I challenge you to make someone smile. Leave me a comment and let me know how you did it.
