These are nice seats for waiting for your flight.
I’m sitting here at The DFW Airport and I’m wondering why people don’t smile anymore. I’m somewhat of a people watcher and when I make contact with people I like to smile and give them a little nod. You know, just to say hello. I would venture to say that 8 out of 10 times I don’t get a smile back. Are people just that unhappy that they can’t return a friendly gesture? Maybe they think I’m some psycho (maybe they are psycho).
I know I need to understand that I don’t their story. Maybe they are waiting for a flight to their hometown where a 20 year high school reunion awaits them with all the disappointments of unaccomplished goals. Perhaps a family member has passed on and they have the task of getting all the affairs in order. Maybe everyone is just dreading being packed in a plane like sardines. Whatever the reason a simple smile will do wonders to improve one’s mood. In fact there are many benefits to smiling.
1. Improves your mood.
2. Relieves stress.
3. Boosts your immunity.
4. Lowers your blood pressure.
So quit being so serious and smile more!
