Validation

November 9, 2009

A must see video starring TJ Thyne wherein we are shown the overpowering importance of a smile and how we all need to be validated.
Have you ever walked down the street and smiled at a stranger? Did they smile back? Did they look away? Did they look happy or sad? How did either of these actions make you feel?
I always try to smile rather than frown. According to Google, it takes 33 facial muscles to frown and 13 facial muscles to smile which should equate to less wrinkles as we age. That factor notwithstanding, I choose to smile rather than frown even in the face of true adversity. That’s not to say that I don’t have my sad moments. But, I don’t let those moments take me over and neither should you!
So watch this video and remember you have the power to validate someone – to make them smile and make them feel good about themselves. You can even do this for yourself. To smile or not to smile is a choice. Choose wisely!
