If I could make a living doing what I love most, I would meet new people every day. I would go around and introduce myself to strangers with a welcoming smile and a calming voice. For those that had a couple minutes to spare, I would ask them about their day; tell them a cheesy joke so that we could share a laugh. Hopefully they wouldn’t be negatively taken back by my openness. I love to meet new people. I like to hear other’s stories that make them who they are. I also love to smile, laugh, and tell silly, corny jokes. And I think the world needs more of all of those things. The world needs more people to smile, to laugh and to relax; enjoy life’s simplicities. Sometimes, people just need a stranger to smile at them and share a giggle on their way back to work after a short lunch break. I believe a new friend and a smile could activate the most positive butterfly affect. Maybe some people wouldn’t believe that a smile from a stranger could change the world. But I am a dreamer and I truly believe that anything is possible. So if I could make a living doing what I love most, I would share my smile with people every day and I would change the world doing so.
