Having managed to avoid the horrid lurgy that has been going around over Christmas and New Year, a few days ago it paid me a visit. Enevitable really but it has meant that PatchDog has not been out for a proper walk for a few day.
Today we're changing that and currently out on a longish walk. I've stopped to post this halfway through our walk.
As I entered the field we're in now, a chap passed me on a bike and as he did he simply smiled and nodded. This is quite unusual in inner city Manchester where I live. His simple act of smiling lifted my mood from good to slightly better.
It only took him a moment, it cost him nothing and yet it had a positive effect on me. I suspect it had a positive effect on him too.
So wear a smile on your face today. You will almost certainly feel better for it and who knows who else you will effect in a positive way?
