Hi everyone,

It's Sunday and as always (well... most Sundays), I'm back with My Sunday Muse.

If you haven't noticed a trend with me through reading and of my previous posts, you can see that I just happen to stumble upon things quite often. Social media is a gold mine of information and I enjoy every bit of it.

Earlier this week, I was doing one of my several daily Facebook updates when I discovered the video below. Before even clicking on the link to watch the video, I was inspired by the post photo which pictured a smiling and waving Tinney Davidson captioned, "Bring on the tears."

Check it out:

I was truly inspired after watching this video, and inevitably a few tears were shed. I think we often don't see people this happy anymore. Maybe it's just the area I live in but most people here don't enthusiastically wave or acknowledge strangers anymore. I'm such a happy person so I speak to a lot of people daily, simply saying hi with a warm smile goes a long way. More often than not, I get a confused look followed by a smug smile.

Naturally, I love to see others living happy lives, I challenge you to smile more often. We now live in a society where greeting strangers is... STRANGE. Let's break that status quo and embrace each other.
